    Finding Books

    The pulldown menu can be set to search UNH Libraries only or broadened to search Boston Library Consortium (BLC) holdings or libraries worldwide (mostly in the US and Canada).

    Items not available at the UNH Libraries usually can be requested from BLC or other libraries by using the Request option located on the right side of an item record.


    The above is a keyword search of titles, authors, subjects, and content notes.

    Results are ranked by relevance. Further refining by date, format, language, and other fields is possible.


    You may also use the UNH Catalog Advanced Search to search for a specific title, author, subject, call number, ISBN, etc. held by the UNH Library.

    The library catalog will identify books, journal titles (not articles), DVDs/videos, musical scores and recordings, maps, etc. at the Durham and Manchester campus libraries.
