Use the Library website to find books
In the library homepage search box, type in the keywords relevant to your research topic. When searching for books, remember to use simple, broad keywords.
From the list of results, go to the Books section, and click on All Books to see the the library catalogue search results.
How to Understand Your Search
To search the catalog effectively, use specific terms when entering search query. To narrow your search, combine terms using "AND." Refine search as needed according to left hand side column by selecting material based on subject, library where it is located, geographical area, format etc.
To access the material, either click on the link if it is an electronic resource, or note down the call number if it is a print resource and locate it in the appropriate library.
Requesting a Book
If a book is only available on another campus, it can be requested. Simply select the "Options" tab and click "Request."
Once this has been selected, a valid student library barcode must be entered followed by the PIN in order to place a hold on the item. Choose intercampus delivery, select St. George campus, and specify the library you prefer to pick the book up at. Make sure to enter an email address that you use frequently as you will receive an email when the book arrives.
Note: Make sure that you order the book AT LEAST 3 business days (preferably a week) before you need it.

The vast majority of the course reserves for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology courses will be held at the Earth Sciences (Noranda) Library or at Gerstein Science Information Centre. If you are unsure if the required readings are held at the Earth Sciences Library, or if you are looking for course reserves for other courses this is where you can locate books that have been placed on short term loan.
