+Search for books

Searching the Catalog

Tips to remember:

Add another keyword if your results are too many; take a keyword away if your results are too few or too narrow.

Limit your searches to books by "Format" on the left side of the page.

If you find something that works, take a look at the Subject Terms that items uses. Add that to your list of search terms.

Where Do I Find This Book?

A Call Number is like an address for the book. Once you find it in the catalog, you can copy/paste it into the Call Number Locator to see where it lives in the library!


There are over 100,000 Ebooks in the SU Library collection. Ebooks can be used 24/7 from any computer with an internet connection.
