Search Butler Libraries Catalog

To search the Butler Library Catalog, type in key terms that identify your subject. For example, type:
history indiana

The library catalog search engine assumes an "AND" between the words, picking up any record that has the terms, not necessarily side-by-side.
Keep in mind that besides books, our catalog can also lead you to DVD's & videos (think documentaries, or films set in your country) and music (mostly CDs).

Tip:  If you are interested in ebooks, limit your search to 'E-book Collection' in the Collection drop-down box.  

Search the Catalog by Subject Terms
