The library’s collections have various classification/organizational systems. For example older material is typically organized by subject headings AND the newer material (after 2011) is organized chronologically. Thus it is important to begin your search using the Library Catalogue to see where the material is located in the library.

Search in OneSearch

Search the Library Catalogue and the Library databases together.

OneSearch is a great starting place to familiarize yourself with the library’s articles, books, theses, and journals.
