Finding Books in DELCAT Discovery

Searching DELCAT Discovery For Books

Some searching tips:

  • Use the Author field to search for works by an author, but use the Subject field to search for works about that author and his or her works.
  • The Advanced Search option limits by language.  This limit applies to the language in which a book was written, rather than the subject of the item.
  • An asterisk (*) can be used as a wildcard.  Search for "wom*n" to find items with woman or women in the record.
  • Library records include subject headings to indicate what a title is about.  Click on a subject heading in your search results to find other relevant titles.

Where are books located in the Library?

Most Spanish Language and Literature books are shelved in the Library with a Library of Congress (LC) call number starting with P, PC, or PQ.  All call numbers beginning with P are located on the second floor or the Morris Library.  See How to Read a Call Number for help interpreting the call numbers you discover in DELCAT Discovery.

If an item's location is the Library Annex, you can place an online request for those items, which will be retrieved and held for you at the Morris Library Circulation Desk.

Books from Other Libraries / Interlibrary Loan

University of Delaware faculty, staff, and students can use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request items from other libraries.  Note that you must create an ILL account before you place your first request.

Average delivery time for articles is 2-3 days and for books, DVDs, and other loans is 10 days.
