3) Find Books & E-Books: Reading a Catalogue Record

A University of Lethbridge Library guide to finding books and e-books.

Reading a Catalogue Record for a Book

After you have completed your catalogue search and selected a particular item from your results, you are presented with a catalogue record. A catalogue record provides information about a particular item in the library. Here is an example of a catalogue record for a print book in the library's main collection:

To find a print book in the library, record the book's location (collection) and call number. Once you have these, proceed to the Find a Book on the Shelf page for further instructions.

The catalogue record for an e-book is similar to that of a print book, except that a link is provided to view the book online:

After clicking on the link, how you proceed to the book and navigate through the book will depend on the particular platform through which the e-book is available.
