Searching for Books

Books (Paper)

Use the All Campus Catalog  to search for books – this includes not only the Duluth catalog, the Twin Cities catalog but the other U of M campus libraries as well.  If the item is not checked out, you should get the book in about 3 working days using GetIt. 

Books (Electronic)

Although you can search for electronic books in our catalog, you can only search in limited ways.  Items from these systems can be searched by exact word or phrase  – EnviroNetBase (ChemLibNetBase and EngNetBase), Springerlink, Knovel (also has interactive tables and graphs), Science Direct, Sage, and Wiley.  Note that some of these databases may show material that UMD does not have access to, but you may borrow these items through Interlibrary Loan.

College of St. Scholastic Library - we have a reciprocal agreement with CSS and you may borrow books from them. 

Duluth Public Library - DPL has a number of very practical books as well as more popular type of books.

Interlibrary Loan - if the UMD Library does not have an item you want, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan.
