Searching Catalog for Photography Books

Do you need to search our catalog for photography books? Let's get started by going to our library's catalog search bar. Type "Photography" or "Photographer" in the search bar.



You will get a lot of results from just doing a general search like this. You will need to use the limiters or filters on the left side to narrow your search to a more manageable results list. If you want a book right away, select "Shepherd University" under held by library  and then "print book" under format.




To further narrow this down, scroll down the list of filters to subject. Click on it subject to open up the list of subjects. Under Art& Architecture, click on photography.


This will greatly reduce your results to feature only print books on photography at our library. Be sure to check the item's location before you go looking for it because the book may be either in the general collection or oversized.
Remember if you want a specific book that the library does not have, you may still be able to get it through Inter-library Loan.
