To search for both print books and ebooks held at NYU Libraries, start with the library catalog, called BobCat. This is also referred to as the Books and More tab because it searches for books as well as audiovisual materials, NYU dissertations, government documents, maps, and other types of physical and electronic resources (but not journal articles).
- Check the status of an item. Generally, Available means that a copy is in the library and can be checked out (excluding Reference materials or items held in one of our Special Collections).
- Note the location and call number of a book, not the ISBN number. The call number (ex. HT261.4.T5 1998) is what you use to locate the item.
- For books in the Main Collection at Bobst Library, consult the call number chart to figure out on which floor a call number is located.
