Book Search

The Discover search box on the Library's home page is a gateway to thousands of ebooks. You can limit to "source type" ebooks (click "show more" if you don't see it.) To find print books (and some ebooks) in the library's collection, use the search box below.

Library Catalog Search      
  • Type in a specific title or click the dropdown to search by author (last name first!) 
  • Start a subject search by using the keyword option on the dropdown menu.
  • When you find a book of interest, click on the subject headings in the record to find similar items.
  • You can also browse by call number to take a virtual walk through the book stacks

Call numbers

Call numbers tell you where a book is shelved. In Drexel Library, we use Library of Congress Classification which groups titles by subject matter.
