Shortcut To Book Search In RU Catalog

Where can I look for Books?

When looking for books, you should check the RU Catalog first to see whether Roosevelt owns a copy - you can get these books the quickest. If Roosevelt does not own the book, check the I-Share Catalog to see whether it is available in any of the 70 other I-Share libraries, including many universities in the Chicago area. In the rare instance that a book is not located in any I-Share library, check the WorldCat catalog.
