Using the Library: Finding Books

Finding Books

You can also expand your search to other libraries by searching the Western North Carolina Library Network Catalog or Worldcat. Request these books via Interlibrary Borrowing.

2. Note the location (General Collection, Reference, DVDs, Periodicals, etc) and call number. Use our building map to locate the materials you need.
