Frequently Asked Questions

How do I search the library catalog?

The steps below are how to search for a book and place it on hold.

 

1. Go to the library home page (www.ccu.edu/library) and enter your search term in the blue Books+ box  and click on search.  

 

2. Limit your search to "books." In our catalog that means physical books.

 

3. Many of our books are housed off-site during our time in the Whitefield Center. You can see if the book is on the main campus or off-campus in the search list.

 

4. If the book is in Whitefield you can come to the library and look for it on the shelf. If it is off-campus, click the place hold button, login with your name and CCU ID number, and the book will be brought to the main CCU campus for pick up.

5. You can also find similar books by clicking on the title and scrolling to the "subjects" area. Clicking on any of the links will start a new search wit that subject. You can also open up the "more like this" area to see similar books and Ebooks.

6. Library staff makes twice daily trips, Monday - Friday, to pick up holds. You will receive notification when your book is ready for pick up!
