Search the Catalog

The Worldcat Library Catalog allows students and faculty to search for print books, ebooks and journal articles all at once.  It searches multiple databases at the same time. Search by Author, Title, Keyword and other options in combination or just single word searches. Users can look for items available from LMU or in universities worldwide that can then be ordered through Inter-Library Loan. Friendly librarians are available to help with all research assignments.
