Search the Library Catalog

The search box below defaults to OBU Library's holdings.  After your initial search, you may widen your results using the checkboxes on the left side of the screen under Held by Library.

  • JEC (HSU & OBU Catalogs) will search the collections of both OBU and HSU libraries.
  • Libraries Worldwide will broaden your search even further.

If you find a book that's not available at OBU or HSU, click on the "Request Item" or "Borrow this item from another library" links to access the interlibrary loan form. For more information, see our Interlibrary Loan Policies.

Distance learning students and faculty who need access to locally held books should contact Kristi Smith at for assistance.

Search for Books Worldwide

Use OCLC's WorldCat to search for books and DVDs in libraries worldwide. If you find a resource that looks promising, click on the title to see if it is located in either the OBU or HSU library.  If the book is not located in either library, you may be able to borrow it through Interlibrary Loan.
