Click on a book image or link to view its PrattCat record--this will help you determine its location & availability.

Search for Books at the Pratt Libraries

 - QuickSearch is the Pratt Institute Libraries' Discovery service.

 - Quick Search provides access to the libraries' entire physical collection and a selection of our digital holdings with a single click. This includes books, DVDs, special collections materials, theses, journals, eBooks, and more. It's the best place to go when you're just starting your research project. 

Find a Book

Step 1:  Visit the Library Website @ library.pratt.edu and use our search box.


 

Step 2:  Sometimes it is helpful to use the "Catalog Only" limiter on the left sidebar to restrict your search results to just items in our library catalog.


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 (917.3 P672P) and visit the Library Stacks. For assistance, you may visit us at the Reference Desk.
