Finding Books in the Library Catalog (also known as NovaCAT)

The NSU Libraries Catalog searches all four library collections. You can search the catalog to locate books, ebooks, videos, dvds, games and other material the libraries own. The format (online or in-print), location, and availability of items will be indicated.  Remember, if you are looking for articles and other types of research material you will want to consult the databases.

Why Use Books in Research?

  • Books can offer a comprehensive view on a topic often offering the past, present, and future considerations.

  • All of these can lead to a more effective search within a database.

  • Use books or book chapters to develop foundation and background knowledge on a topic. Then, search library databases for specific research on a topic.
