Where to Find Books

The Library Search is a Great Starting Point for Books!

Use the search box below to search almost everything the library has to offer, or visit the library homepage. Check out the How to Find Books [link to guide page] page in this guide for step-by-step directions.

Borrowing Books Beyond SAIC

If you are seeking books that are unavailable in the library catalog, we recommend first checking if it can be requested through I-Share (linked below). If that does not work, the next step is to fill out the Interlibrary Loan form (ILL). Library staff will do everything we can to get materials for current SAIC faculty, students, and staff through ILL when not available through I-Share.
