Library Catalogs

A catalog is an example of a library database. Library catalogs list books and other items that are held by individual libraries.

Search ND Catalog when you want to know whether the library owns a particular item such as a book, journal, or video. Library catalogs do not list individual articles.

By default, ND Catalog searches the holdings of the Hesburgh Libraries and Kresge Law Library. Check the "Include Partner Libraries" box to include the holdings of Saint Mary's, Bethel, and Holy Cross libraries’ catalogs.
