Finding Books in Campbell Library

To find a book, enter the title in the Library Search box on the Campbell Library homepage. If your book is not the first result, refine your search to Books in the Resource Type facet in the left sidebar. Please note that the library does not have copies of most textbooks. 

Many books are now available in e-book format and can be viewed on your computer, tablet, or phone - click on View Online

To locate print books on the shelf, you'll need to have the Call Number listed in the results display. The first letter of the call number tells you the floor and row (A - K is on the 3rd floor, L- Z on the 4th); the rest of the call number identifies the book on the shelf. Browse the rows to find the book with that call number on its spine.

Reference Works

The print Reference Collection is located on the 2nd floor of Campbell Library. Reference books may not be checked out.

The library subscribes to many databases with reference content. The list below is only a sample. 

Borrowing Books

Your Rowan card is your library card. Bring your books to the Information Desk on the first floor to check them out.
