Library Search, the University’s Library Catalogue is the key to finding resources in the Library. Library Search is divided into 4 search tabs, to find books, you should click on the tab “Bangor Search” rather than the default “Everything” tab. Type as much information as you have about your book into the search box including words in the title and the author name, then press search.


When you find the item in Library Search, if it is available to borrow, it will show a green dot and an Available at status with the location listed. Click on the In Library tab to view multiple copies. Note down the location and call number to help you find the book on the shelf.  The location will tell you in which library you will find the book and in which section.  The call number is the system we use to find the book on the shelf.


You can also limit your results to e-books only, by performing your search as above and then using the filters on left of the screen, Resource Type: Books and Show Only: Full Text Online


If you want to find items on a particular reading list for a certain module, you can do this by clicking on the Reading Lists link in the top right corner of Library Search and then typing in your module title or module code.
