Finding Books

SEARCH the UR Catalog

To search for books in Boatwright, use the Library Catalog. Start with a keyword search or "all words."  Since some of the most common words you might search for aren't actually in the subject headings -- use terms from the subject headings if have trouble locating books.

If you are looking for information on a person, you should first use that person's name in a keyword search.  However, many books will have information on persons that is not evident from the information in the catalog.  To find these books, you should scan the tables of contents and indexes of books in the appropriate call number area.

You can search by book Title, Author, All fields or Subject

To expand your search to books in libraries worldwide, often available through Inter-Library Loan from other libraries, use WorldCat.
