Library Catalog

Logan Library's collection consists of 75,000 print materials. The collection is organized under the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system. A classification system uses letters and/or numbers (call numbers) to arrange the books so that books on the same topic are together. This arrangement results in "serendipitous browsing:" you find one book in the catalog, go to the shelf, and, an even better book is sitting right next to it.

Databases

Through the library website, you have access to 90+ online databases and over 200,000 eBooks. Can't find the book or article in our catalog or databases? Put in an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request!

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a library-to-library loan service offered by Logan Library to student, faculty and staff users. The primary purpose of ILL is to assist scholarly research by obtaining materials not locally available. Users may request books and other materials for loan or book chapters and articles for electronic delivery.
