Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

Use the library catalogue to search for books, e-books, government documents, dissertations, conference proceedings available in the Carleton University Library.

Please note that you can only search for the journal title in the Library catalogue. If you wish to search for journal articles on a topic, you will need to use databases.

Use the TITLE option if you know the title of a book.

Use the AUTHOR option (last name, first name), if you know the author of a book.

If you trying to find books on a topic in the library, do a KEYWORD search in the library catalogue. Use quotations around search phrases (e.g. “five-factor model"). When you find a book that is relevant to your research, scroll down and look at the SUBJECT headings. Select the appropriate SUBJECT heading and follow the link that will lead you to other relevant books available in our library.
