The best place to begin your search is the Novanet catalogue, which contains all of the holdings at all the university and community college libraries in Nova Scotia. If you would like to limit your search to the King's Library or King's and Dalhousie, you can select this option in your search. You can also order books from other libraries using Novanet Express, and pick them up at King's.
A Novanet search will bring up both print and e-resources, and you have the option to filter your search to focus on one or the other if desired. Other search filters include limiting your results based on publication date, owning library, type of resource (book, article, dissertation, etc.), and language.
If the book you are looking for is not in Novanet, click on the Interlibrary Loans tab to learn how to order it.
Materials not available at King's or another Novanet library can be obtained from libraries worldwide by placing a request through Interlibrary Loan Services. You can request to have the item sent to the King's Library or request a photocopy of the item emailed to you directly.
To find books beyond Novanet, try searching the OCLC WorldCat database.
WorldCat allows you to search for the exact edition of the item you are looking for, and find out which libraries own a copy. Entering this information in your ILL request makes the interlibrary loan process smoother and more efficient on our end, meaning you will receive your item faster because you have retrieved the correct information for us.
