Library Search: Help

A guide to using the search tool Library Search.


What is Library Search?

Library Search is the new main search function on the Rowan University Libraries web page. Use Library Search to simultaneously search for items in the Libraries' physical collections and online. See Searching Basics for more information on what is included in Library Search.

How do I use Library Search?

The Library Search box appears at the top of the library home page. You can type in search terms directly and click the magnifying glass to search, which will take you to the full Library Search screen. Explore the options on the left side of this page for more detailed information about Library Search's functions.

Where is the library catalog?

There is no longer a separate Library Catalog search for books and similar materials. You can now find these items through Library Search, by selecting "Books" or another appropriate option under Resource Type after you search.

What if I need help?

Ask a librarian for help anytime using the Ask A Librarian page, or when the "Chat is Online" message is displayed in the upper right of the library home page, you can chat with a librarian directly. Chat is usually available from 9am to 5pm on weekdays during the summer, and from 9am to 9pm on weekdays during the semester.
