Q

Is it possible to search for a book if I don't have a BYU ID?

I want to see if you have a specific book but I don't go to BYU and I don't have a login ID. How do I search the library catalog without a login?

Answer

Searching the Online Library Catalog

Anyone can search the Online Library Catalog

You do not need a BYU NETID to search the catalog

Use  "Books & E-books" or "Books" on the Library home page

Click the small grey down arrow in the search box to narrow your search by Title, Author, Subject, etc.

Finding Books In the Library

Find the book in the Library using the call number given in your Library catalog search

Call numbers are arranged by Level

There is an interactive directory of call number locations on Level 3 near the elevator doors

There are also print floor maps on each floor near the stairwell landings and the elevator doors

If you need help finding a call number, ask at a Help Desk (there is at least 1 Help Desk on every level).
