Search for Books at the Pratt Libraries

 - PrattCat is the Pratt Libraries' online catalog.

 - Search for books, DVDs, holdings of journals & magazines (NOT ARTICLES), newspapers, MMS equipment, etc.

 - PrattCat allows you to use one interface to search for items at both campus libraries (Brooklyn and Manhattan).

 - If you would like to limit your search to a particular Pratt Library (the Manhattan or Brooklyn Library), you may do so at PrattCat's Advanced Search page.

Find a Book

Step 1:  Visit the Library Website @ library.pratt.edu

Step 2:  Use the drop-down menu to select "title," (or "author," or "subject," whatever your criteria) and enter the title of the book or journal you want.  Then click "Search PrattCat".

Step 3:  This record for this book says it's "available," which means I can go to the stacks and find it. 

So I write down the call number (198.9 K47E) and visit the Library Stacks. For assistance, you may refer to the Library Stacks Guide.
