Finding Library Materials


The Library Catalog is an online database of materials - print, electronic or multimedia - owned by the Eccles Library. It contains records of books, journal titles, audiovisuals, theses, reserve items, government documents and multimedia located at the Eccles Library, the Hope Fox Eccles Clinical Library, and libraries which are members of the Utah Health Sciences Library Consortium (UHSLC). The catalog also contains records and links to the Multimedia Collection of digital graphics developed by the Knowledge Weavers at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library as part of a National Library of Medicine grant. Location and availability of items is included in each record. Online help is available.
