A library catalog is simply a database that contains records for the materials owned by or accessible through that library. The UNH Library Catalog includes materials owned and accessible through the UNH Library at Durham and the UNH-Manchester Library. This is the best way to access UNH's online resources, like e-books, and to find physical materials in our locations.
You can switch to the Books & Media Worldwide (BLC Worldcat Discovery) catalog to find out about materials beyond UNH. You can request books and media from other college and university libraries from all over the U.S. and sometimes beyond with "InterLibrary Loan" services, which include article scanning. For InterLibrary Loan, create a free account for borrowing.
Both of these library catalogs include journal titles and magazine titles, but NOT article titles. To see if an article is available at UNH, use the UNH Library catalog on the home page to look up the journal's title. Example:
Click on the subjects below to search the UNH Library Catalog. After you search, you can narrow most any search. Click on the Limit/Sort Search Icon in the catalog: and choose limits or add words. Choices include: library location, year of publication, words in title or author, material type, etc.
UNH uses the Library of Congress (LC) system, like most academic libraries. Here is a clickable outline of the categories and call numbers. Call numbers are read line by line:
Note: In .W45 the 45 is a decimal number. The letter W stands for the author (or title if no author).
Example of the order:
TD TD TD
146 146 146
.W427 .W45 .W5
Breaking a subject down into subtopics:
Remember, all books should be in the catalog, so you can browse there also.
