Finding Books

Browsing the Catalog

You can perform a subject search in the UNT Library Catalog, A Subject search is often a good starting point. Your results will display the number of titles we have under that general heading, and then under a series of sub-headings, which often focus on specific regions or related items. You can also perform keyword searches. The catalog will look for your search terms anywhere in the library item record (i.e. title, author, subject, notes), allowing you to perform a more targeted search.

When you have located the materials you are interested in, write down the call number and title to find the book on the shelves or present it to a staff person at the Service Desk for help.
