The Library Catalog is an online database of all the books, journals, encyclopedias, etc. that the Library has access to. If you want to find a book, the first place you go is the Library Catalog. To enter the Catalog, use the search bar on the Library Home Page or go directly to the Catalog.
Books are located on the 2nd - 4th floors, organized by the Library of Congress Classification scheme; additional books may be located in our Oversize Book collection, also on the 2nd floor.
Below are some APPROXIMATE call number areas that you might find useful. You should search for books using the library catalog online first, but you may want to browse further in these areas for books.
|Taoism||BL1899 - BL 1942|
|Indians of North America||E75-99
Yes! If you want something we don't own, we can always order it for you from another library at no cost to you.
How can you tell whether we own something or not? In most cases, a yellow dot will appear next to an item that we don't own, but that is owned by one of our partner libraries. Follow these steps to request an item:
If Summit does not own the item, or you can't find it in our catalog, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. You can fill out a registration form to get started; once signed in, you can place new requests by format using the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
See this page for examples of what to look for.
