To find a specific book or books on a particular topic, start with a library catalog. The catalog will tell you which books we own, and will give you the location and call number you need to find the book on the shelf. Our library uses two different catalogs:
UC Library Search Catalog:
- Includes all items owned by the University of California Libraries
- Search examples
- Search UC Library Search
- Use when you don't find what you are looking for in a UC Library
- Includes books in other libraries around the US and in other countries
- Search examples and help
- Search WorldCat
