Magic in the Library

Search the Web Like A Pro


The Library has materials in many formats, including books, music scores, recordings (CDs, LPs, cassettes), videos (DVDs, VHS), journals, microfilm. These items can all be found in the Library's catalog.

NOTE: What you won't find in the library catalog are individual journal articles--to find those you'll need to use one or more journal databases.
