find books using the library catalog

Find Books on Your Own

The Library Catalog locates books, journals (not articles), microfilm, dvds, cds, and U.S. documents (1976->) owned by the UVM Libraries. There are two versions of the catalog: CATQuest version (use the Advanced Search mode to get to the screen below) and the Classic Library Catalog (direct link found by clicking on "Research" on the top of the homepage).

KEYWORD SEARCH (books on a subject or topic)

Note:  The best way to perform a keyword search in the CATQuest version of the Library Catalo is to use the Advanced Search function.

Sample Search in Advanced Search mode:

Browse the Stacks

Find a useful book in the stacks? Browse in that area to discover other books that might be useful.

Renew Books

Books that are not overdue may be renewed online.

The link Renew a Book is on the Library Homepage, under the category "Services".

Check Out a Book

Bring book/s to the Circulation Desk, located next to the library's entrance. Your student ID serves as your library card. The loan period for Honors students is one semester. You may request a renewal if you still need the book/s after the due date.

Check out as many books as you need.

Recall Books

If a book you need is checked out, you may Recall the book from the person who has it. The Library will contact you when the book is returned, and will be held for you at the Circulation Desk.
