Find Books in the Library

Search Criss Library and beyond

Search tips

  • Use phrases instead of sentences for more exact searching, i.e. "Writer's Market"
  • Select one of the options in the left-hand column "Search Tools" to narrow your search by Author, Format, Year, Content, and other criteria.
  • Pay attention to the location and call number of the book. This information will tell you what floor, and where to find it. 
  • You can change the order of books to relevance only, or have them arranged by oldest or newest publication date or alphabetical order.
  • Use the Advanced Search to search by author, title, or subject and to limit by language, format, date or date range
  • When using searches with AND/OR be sure to use ALL CAPS.
