Use the Stewart
Library Catalog to
find the location and availability of books and other media in Stewart Library.
Most of the books in the catalog are located on level two
of the library in the General Collection under the call number QE. Another
resource to find books in libraries outside the Stewart Library is Worldcat.
It is a catalog of books, web resources, and other materials from a large
number of libraries.
Order books online from
Amazon Books or Barnes and Noble. Also use Books
in Print sources as needed.
If we do not own a particular book or article you need, we
will borrow it for you from another library through Interlibrary
Reference resources include encyclopedias, dictionaries and
other materials you use to "refer" to. Use these resources
to find background information on a topic.
