The TCNJ Library Catalog identifies every item located in the library and will point you to its location. Books, magazines, newspapers, journals, videos, DVDs, CDs and music are basic items the catalog indexes.

You can link directly to electronic resources that are indexed in the catalog. Electronic books, online government documents, and Internet resources are indexed and given subjects just like the books in the catalog. 

One thing you will NOT find in the catalog is article titles. So, if you know the headline of newspaper story or the title of a particular journal article, you will NOT find it in the catalog. For example, you'll be able to find out if TCNJ Library offers access to The New York Times, but you won't be able to find out from the catalog what's on the front page of today's New York Times.

Although periodical titles (magazines, journals, and newspapers) are indexed in the catalog, article titles are not. You will need to use a research database to locate specific periodical articles. 


Use the Catalog
  • to find out what books, etc., the library owns on your topic

  • to find where a specific item is located in the library
  • to find and link directly to electronic resources subscribed to by the library
