Seeker and USMAI Catalog

Seeker is the search box on the library home page. It retrieves books and media from the Loyola Notre Dame Library (LNDL) catalog, articles from some of the Library's databases, as well as books from the University System of Maryland & Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) consortium, through which LNDL has access to 10 million items. Searches can be limited by location and type of publication.  For books, start by entering "Service Learning."  Then limit the results (see left side of screen) to LNDL Books and Videos to retrieve only those items available from LNDL. Below are some items retrieved from that search.
