Book Search Tips!

  1. Keep your search terms more general than you would with an article database;
  2. If you find a great book on your topic, browse the shelves near this book for similar books;
  3. The default search is limited to Loras Library only; if you're not finding enough, expand to other libraries in the region or the world;
  4. When you identify a book that Loras Library does not have, use interlibrary loan to get it;
  5. Many current books are ebooks; don't forget to click on those links;
  6. Need help finding books on our shelves? Here's how to use library call numbers.

Searching Tips

A keyword search for religion brings up a list of over 21,000 books. To narrow your results click on one of the subjects below or search using a keyword from your topic. 

  • Bible : On the left side, you can scroll to the bottom and limit your results by topic, so you get the Bible and books about it, not The Javascript Bible.
  • Augustine of Hippo : You can limit a search to books by someone by going to Advanced search and changing the search index to Author.

If you can't find what you are looking for in our catalog, use links to the left to see if other local colleges might have it.
