In addition to using the main search engine on our home page, you can use the Penfield Library Catalog to search for books. 

If you're looking for a particular book, search by title and/or author (e.g. Almagest by Ptolemy). 

If you want books about a particular topic or person, search by keyword or subject (e.g. Geocentric model).

Books from other libraries: Worldwide Libraries Catalog
