How to Find Books

Books at the Davidson College Library

Physical books are located on the second level (Dewey Classified) and basement level (Library of Congress classified and Oversize collection) of the Davidson College Library, and available for checkout for students, faculty and staff using your Catcard. Reference books are non-circulating books available for use within the library.

The Music Library in the Sloan Building houses many of our music related books and sheet music.

Our browsing collection contains titles recommended by students, staff, and faculty and are primarily leisure reading titles. Students can recommend books at Main Street Books in Davidson--just bring one or two items to the counter, let the staff know that you are a Davidson student, and give them your name. Library staff will purchase new items every Monday, and the book will be checked out to the student who requested it. You'll be notified via email when your book is ready!

eBooks are online resources that Davidson College students, faculty, and staff can access from anywhere. We provide access to thousands of titles from variety of publishers and vendors. Many are digital rights management free (DRM-free) allowing users to download or print material without restrictions. You can search for electronic books by title or full text in electronic book collections.
