FOL 3880: Research & Bibliographic Methods

Find Books

Locating Books in the Library

 FAU Library Catalog:

The Library Catalog allows you to search for books, government documents, DVDs, streaming video, electronic books, and other materials in the Library's collection. The catalog will tell you if the library owns a particular periodical (journal or magazine) but does not include the articles found in periodicals. To find these you must use a different database (click on the "Finding Articles" or OneSearch link to the left). 

The Advanced search screen allows you to combine terms using “and, or, not” as well as limiting a search by material type, language, and/or date.
