Find Books

Search for books by using the UNM Library Catalog and following the steps below or take the short, interactive  "Finding Books Tutorial" in the right column. 

Step 1:

Choose the "Books Only" tab from the library homepage. You can search by keyword, title, author, or call number.  The default setting is to search libraries worldwide.  This is because you can order books to borrow (for free) from interlibrary loan.  The only catch is that you'll need to plan ahead to give the item time to ship. Unfortunately, we usually cannot ILL ebooks.

You can also limit to location.  Are you looking for topics related to English literature and art? Try narrowing your search to the Fine Arts Library. Looking for historical editions? Select "Center for Southwest Research & Special Collections."

Step 2:  

Further refine your list of results.  Use the filters in the left-hand column to limit by date, language, and topic among others.
