NOBLE Catalog

NOBLE Catalog

Use the NOBLE Catalog to find books, e-books, dvds, and streaming videos from McQuade, as well as the 26 other libraries in our consortium (NOBLE). If another library has something you want, request it through interlibrary loan (ILL) at no charge and pick it up at the Help Desk on the first floor when it arrives. 

Browse the Stacks

The library uses the Library of Congress Classification system. Because books are organized by subject, you can browse the stacks, and find books on the same topic shelved together.

At McQuade, call numbers A-H are located on the 2nd floor. Call numbers J-Z  are located on the lower level.
