Finding Books 

The Learning Commons at CTS now has an online catalog. Therefore, the Learning Commons now provides two ways of finding the books and other resources we own:

Local Catalog

  • You can find the Online Catalog on our website. Clicking here takes you directly to the catalog. No login is required just to search for books. Links to ebooks will require a login, which is your CTS email credentials.

Worldwide Catalog

  • You can find books and other materials in libraries worldwide through WorldCat. This used to be called "FirstSearch" and was difficult to use.
  • Searches made in WorldCat Discovery includes more than just books! CTS' local resources, the books from libraries around the globe, and also an index of journal articles are included in every search you make!
