Find Books the Library Owns

Books in a row

The catalog has books, ebooks, government documents, videos, audio books, music CD's, streaming music, streaming video, and some websites. Do a keyword search or search by author, title or subject. Use the Advanced Search to specify language or type of material or year.

TigerSearch is a new type of catalog that is more like a search engine. It includes everything that is in our classic catalog, PLUS you will get journal article results from selected databases. You can fine-tune your results by using the facets in the left column.

eBooks at Sewanee

An e-book, also known as an electronic book or digital book, is "an electronic version of a printed book." An e-book can also exist without any printed equivalent. Over 200 thousand e-books are represented in the library catalog, with links to view them. Some of our e-books can only be viewed on your computer screen. However, many books from JSTOR Ebooks, Proquest Ebook Central, and the EBSCO E-book Collection can be downloaded onto an eReader or other device, such as an iPad.
