Finding Books at Bobst


To find books at Bobst, search BobCat, our library catalog.

A few steps:

  1. Check the status of an item.  Generally, Available means that the copy is in the library and can be checked out (excluding Reference materials).
  2. Note the call number, not the ISBN number.  The call number (ex. HT261.4.T5 1998) is what you use to locate the book.
  3. Consult the directory in the elevator to figure out which floor your item is on.
