Communication & Information Sciences Research Guide: Find Books

This library research guide is designed to support doctoral students in the Communication & Information Sciences (CIS) program.

Finding Books in the Library Catalog

OneSearch Manoa is the library's integrated search tool.  It will search the library's catalog for material in the library, including books, articles, conference papers, maps, government documents, DVDs, archives & manuscripts, and more.  Also will search ebooks and SOME databases.

Getting Library Books

How do you get a book once you find a reference to it in the catalog?

If it's supposed to be at UHM:

  • If its location is Hamilton Hawaiian or Hamilton Pacific, use the Get This Item link in OneSearch to request that it be brought out for you.
  • Otherwise, go to the library and get it. (Actually, you can use the Get This Item/Hold or Transfer option to ask us to pull it from the shelf for you, but it takes a day or so. Pick up non-Hawn/Pac books at the main circulation desk on the first floor.)
  • If it's not on the shelf, ask someone to help you find it.
  • If we can't find it, ask us to borrow it from somewhere else.

If it's supposed to be at another UH System library:

  • Request that it be sent here from the other UH System library.
  • Or you can pick it up from that library yourself (quicker).

If it's at another library:
