Finding Books

Use CONSORT, the shared catalog of Kenyon, Denison, Ohio Wesleyan, and Wooster, to find relevant books. If you're having trouble finding an item in the library, check out How to Read a Call Number.

1. Author search: Locate books, poems, plays, etc. by a particular author: Timerman, Jacobo

NOTE: If you are unsure of the exact TITLE, try a KEYWORD search instead.

If a keyword search leads to a book that seems promising, click on the subject heading links at the bottom of the record to see similar items. You can also select "subject heading" in the "search by" box and try the following:

You can also search the OhioLINK catalog, which contains the holdings of most academic and a few public libraries across Ohio.
