1) Click on Library Catalouge under the Library menu of the SSS homepage.

2) Make sure the library that you are searching is “Smithers Secondary”. (Click the down arrow next to the Libraries box for options).

3) You can search by title, author, subject or series. 


You can easily see if the book is in under “Availability.” 

The books are organized on the shlves by Genre (like Fantasy or Mystery), then by last name of the author.  You will know which genre the book is by the three letter code in brackets after the Call number.

Here's an example:  F RIO (FAN).  F means it is in the Fiction section.  FAN means the Fantasy shelves and RIO is the last three letters of the author's surname.  You would find the book in the Fiction section, the Fantasy shelves in the R section.
