You can search for books from the library's homepage:

Search bar with an arrow pointed at "SHU Search"

Search bar with an arrow pointed at "Books" and "Go"



Once you find the book you're looking for, pay attention to this information:

Books may only have eBook options, only print book options, or both. If a print book is available, click on the "Map It" link. This will display the location of the book in the library:

Note the shelving row 4.207 and the book's call number, KF2995 .C576 2020. The shelving number can be found on the sides of each bookshelf; these are helpful markers to use to make sure you've made your way to the right shelf in the library. The call number is even more important: this is a unique number given to the book that you need to use when you're looking through the shelves. Call numbers can be found on the spine of the book. Use that number alongside the shelving row and map to find what you're looking for.
