How do I find what I'm looking for?

  • Use the classic Library Catalogue to search by author, title, author/title, keyword/s and subject (Library of Congress subject headings). Or use the new Library Catalogue to search by title or topic. If an item is part of the Curriculum Collection the message in the location box will say KURING CURRICULUM PINK.
  • Browse the picture drawers and kit shelves in the Curriculum Collection.
  • If the catalogue tells you an item is in the library but you can't find it in its correct location look on the red sorting shelves.
  • Ask for help at the Enquiries Desk or Research Help Desk on Level 4.
