Library Research Tutorial

Books & Media

Finding Books and Media

Books and films are great sources for research. The library has thousands of print & electronic books and films available.

Get started by clicking on the "Books & Media" tab on the library's homepage.


Search for Books & Media from Xavier University Library

You can find print books in the Xavier collections, or request books from OhioLINK, which gives you access to books from universities statewide.

Look for the Book , E-book  or E-Film  icons next to each record to know what type of source it is.

Print books have a Location and a Call Number so you can find them on the library's shelves. Ask for help at the CLC Connection Center Desk.
