The Library Catalog
Use Worldcat@SU, the library's online catalog, to find books, e-books, videos, DVDs, CDs and more at Smith Library Center. A Keyword search will look for your search term(s) in the entire catalog record for an item -- title, author, subject, contents, etc.
Always ask a librarian for help if you are not finding what you need. It may simply be a matter of figuring out the right words to search.
