How to find books

St. Lawrence University Library Catalog  

Use Encore or ODYsseus to find books and e-books for your assignments. Encore and ODYsseus are our library catalogs and both list holdings at all 3 libraries on campus.


Keep in mind that call numbers group books by topic so if you find one book on your topic, the books around it on the shelves are likely to deal with similar topics.  

Also keep in mind that Location is of as much importance as the call number when finding books.  Note that the same book might be found in ODY and Launders Science Library.  Location also tells you if the book is in the regular stacks or somewhere else.


Inter-Library Loan

If you are unable to loacate an item in the SLU library catalog, the next step is to browse ConnectNY. ConnectNY is a group of libraries in the state of NY that lend and borrow books from each other. Click the blue ConnectNY icon within Encore or ODYsseus.

Still can't find what you're looking for? You may request a specific title via ILLiad (but always try ConnectNY first). You must sign up for an ILLiad account on your own, if you have not already done so. Just go to My Accounts -> Interlibrary Loan to sign in or create an account.


If you have any questions about requesting or finding books, please contact any of the Librarians:

Gwen Cunningham at Launders Science Library

Rhonda Courtney or Paul Doty at ODY
