Library Catalog -- Searching for a Particular Title/Author

Books Library Catalog Search   
  • The Library Catalog is best used when searching for a specific title or author. 
  • You can search across additional fields such as ISBN or Call Number etc.
  • You can also search for specific "subjects" as defined by the Library of Congress
Use this catalog if you need to capture a permanent link to the record for a resource.

Call numbers

Call numbers tell you where a book is shelved in the Library. In Drexel Library, we use the Library of Congress (LC) Classification scheme which groups titles by subject matter.  This classification system is a great way to group books together, but it is not always intuitive to the searcher.  If you can not locate a book on the shelf, please ask a library staff member for help rather than leaving without the material you need.  Even if we can't locate the particular title you wanted, we can probably find another just as useful.


In addition to our collection of physical books at the Library, you can access our subscribed eBooks on several platforms.  Some of these are linked on this guide already (e.g., Cambridge Companions, Cambridge Histories, Credo Reference).  Additionally, we have subscriptions providing access to hundreds of thousands of eBooks from EBSCO, ProQuest, and JSTOR. 

EBSCO and ProQuest eBooks have certain usage restrictions, adding a few extra steps to accessing the content.  For help, please take a look at this helpful guide.

These books will appear in your Discover search results and can also be accessed directly via our Databases A-Z links. Examples include:
