Finding Books in OneSearch

OneSearch will show you the following types of books:

  • Books in print (hard copy) at LNDL
  • Ebooks owned by LNDL
  • Books in print at other USMAI consortium libraries

Note: We cannot borrow ebooks from other libraries. USMAI borrowing is for print books only. You may see ebook results that we do not own in OneSearch. We can help you request print versions of those books!
