Locating Books at LNDL

Search the Library Catalog (called Seeker) by keyword, title, author or subject.

Books are organized in the Loyola/Notre Dame Library by call number. View call number locations and floor maps of the library. 

The library catalog is shared with 16 other libraries in University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) consortium, and items from these libraries can be requested online and delivered to LNDL. View our Other Libraries page for a list of USMAI libraries, and visit our USMAI Borrowing page for more information about how to request materials.  

If you are unable to find a particular book listed in the library catalog, you can request it for free through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)Books and other physical items will take about a week to arrive; you will be notified via email when items are ready for pickup. Loan periods and renewals vary according to the lending libraries.
