This guide is intended to make the library website easier to understand and use for distance education students.

Searching for books

  •  Search by keywords or other terms to locate your item
  • It is recommended to search by title or ISBN number if known, as these are most likely to bring items available at Missouri S&T to the top of the catalog
  • Write down the call number/location of the book and/or place a hold

Find books outside of S&T


  • Can perform a general or advanced search
  • Items will have to be sent through InterLibrary Loan
  • Write down title of item you would like
