Finding books and ebooks

TIND is our online catalogue. It includes print and electronic holdings. If you're looking specifically for ebooks looks for the square brackets [electronic resoure] after the title in the catalog record.

If our library does not have a book or subscribe to an article that you'd like, you can request it through Docuserve (Interlibrary Loan). You can email me directly if you'd like a book to be purchased for our collections or use this form.


Print and electronic collections

Linking to Online Journal Content / ejournals

Google Scholar - This FAQ explains how to configure your Scholar account so that Caltech Connect links appear in your search results. 

NASA ADS - Please see this FAQ if you'd like to configure ADS to work with our link resolver. 

Off Campus Access to Library Resources - Please consult this page for options about how to access library subscriptions remotely.

Only current Caltech students, faculty, and staff have remote-access privileges to Caltech-licensed library resources. 

Print Collections

Print collections for PMA are in Cahill (astronomy), the Sherman Fairchild Library (physics and math) and the Millikan basement (astronomy overflow).

Access holdings and Docuserve

Find EJournals - To understand the library's electronic journal holdings, search by title in this database.

TIND - Our online catalogue can help you understand our print holdings. It also includes records for ebooks.

Citation Linker - Paste a DOI into this search in order to link to a publisher PDF or a Docuserve menu.

Docuserve / Interlibrary Loan - Submit a Docuserve request for material not held in our physical collections or for articles/book chapters that we don't own. The service is free and PDFs are usually delivered in less than 2 days. For more immediate service, use RUSH. Docuserve users are entitled to 10 free RUSH requests each year.
