Finding Books in the Library Catalogue

The Library Catalogue

The Leddy Library's One Stop Search allows you to discover and find articles from scholarly journals and newspapers, books and book reviews, videos and other types of media.

The Leddy Library Catalogue has a similar look and feel to our One Stop Search but it brings back very different results: mostly books (print and ebooks), DVDs, and other physical media found within the Leddy Library itself.

The Leddy Library shares its library catalogue so if you are researching matters related to law or government, be mindful of the location of the material you are looking for:

Books in the library are organized by the Library of Congress Classification System and are placed on shelves in call number order.

Once you have found an item of interest, make note of each item's call number and the floor where the item can be found.

Once you have retrieved your book bring it to the Circulation Desk at the entrance of the Leddy Library and show your student card / library card in order to borrow the material.

When logged in, it is also possible to place a request on a book that has already been signed out. Click on the “Holdings” tab and beside “Request Options” there will be a link to request the item. The person who has currently borrowed the material will be notifiied to return the material within two weeks.

Using the Advanced Search feature allows the user to narrow their search down ahead of time rather than attempting to narrow it down after results have been found.
