Use Library Search -- the Libraries' all-purpose search tool -- to find books at WMU Libraries.
TIps on using Library Search:
View our Library Search Guide for more detailed info and videos on using Library Search.
Use MelCat and WorldCat to identify pertinent resources "out there" that are not owned by the WMU Libraries. You can request items directly through MelCat and through Interlibrary Loan from WorldCat. We will borrow the book(s) from another library and the service is FREE to you.
The WMU Libraries uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification for its books. Because of its peculiarities, you can rarely search in just ONE place for books on your topic. Use the catalog to identify books, and if you see a pattern in call numbers, then go browse in that area in the stacks. Most world history is classified in the Ds, located on the second floor of Waldo Library.
