Looking for a Book?

QUT Library Home Page is the place to begin!  Scroll down to the Search section which looks like this.

Select the box next to In the Library catalogue and then type words from the title of the book into the Quick Find search box. Alternatively you can select the Library catalogue link and type your title words into the Keyword search in the catalogue. Searching in the catalogue also allows you to search directly by specific fields such as Title, Author, or Subject. To do this just select from the tabs at the top of the catalogue search page.

Once you have entered your search words you will then see a list of books from which you can select your choice. It will usually be near the top of the list. Click on the title to find full record details including the information you will need to find the book on the shelf. This includes the campus location, call number and whether the item is currently available or on loan.

Here is an example of a library record. In the box below the book details you can see the campus location is Caboolture, the call number is 791.4309 114 and the book is available.

Sometimes the library may have multiple copies of the one book and you may then see a link to View additional copies in order to see the full information about all copies.
