Swem Catalog Search

Use the library catalog to search for books.

You can also do a quick search here:

Search for: in

Sample Basic Searches:

Title Enter title without beginning "A", "An", "The"
Enter last name, then first (e.g. Einstein, Albert)

Good for starting a search for books on a topic; then use
subject headings on relevant records to find more.

Subject Tricky! Need to know Library of Congress subject headings.


To find books written in German, click on "advanced search" from the library catalog page and select "German" under the language menu. When searching the catalog, you do not need to use umlauts.


Not finding what you need in Swem? Please look at WorldCat which contains books from libraries all over the world.
