How Do I Find Books?

Find a Book

Use a catalog to find books, videos, and electronic resources in libraries.

  • Search by title if you know the title of the book.
  • Search by author if want to see all books by an author.
  • Search by keyword to find items matching the keywords you choose.
  • Search by subject heading to find books by topic [tip: consult the Library on Congress Subject Headings (link to loc)].

Search for items in EZRA, Wittenberg's Library Catalog.

To find the item on the shelf, copy the complete call number and the beginning of the title. Take note of the location and the status of the items you want.
