  1. The TCU Library Catalog link is located on the library website under the "Catalog" tab.

    • Punctuation and capitalization are not necessary.
  4. Click on Go.
  5. Click on the Full View of Record link for the title you need.
  6. Often the journal issue or book that you want may be available electronically. If the item you want is not full text online but is available in our print collection, write down the journal or book location and call number.
    • Write down the complete call number. You will need all this information to find the book on the shelf.
    • Be sure to click the Location link to see a map of where the item is shelved.
  7. Retrieve the journal or book.
    • If you need help locating where your book is shelved, ask for help at the TCU Library IC Reference Desk on the main floor.
