Find Books

Begin searching in the Library Catalog:

  • Use your other search terms as either Anyword Anywhere or Subject.             

Note: For a "Start of Title" you need to know exactly what you're looking for. It's not the best search to use when you're doing a topical search

  • You can use a plus sign (+) in front of key words with the Anyword Anywhere search, and quotes ("") will search an exact phrase (e.g. +typography +type or "goudy old style")
  • Can' find what you're looking for in Wheaton's catalog?
    • Search in I-Share
    • If you still don't find what you are looking for, search WorldCat

To find Reference books that contain information on your issue or event, go to the catalog's "Advanced Search" and set the limits to the location "Reference Area (BML)."
