How Do I Find Books at Kennedy Library?

Use Search Everything available on the library's website: lib.calpoly.edu

Search Everything

 

You can search for books by Keyword, Title, Author, or Subject.

  • Keyword: searches ALL FIELDS of the book's record
  • Title: searches the TITLE field
  • Author: searches the AUTHOR field
  • Subject: searches the SUBJECT HEADINGS field

Remember to check your spelling if you get zero -- or strange -- results. Brainstorm and use synonyms to increase the number of items you retrieve.
