Students are welcome to come into the library to do research, study quietly, or simply peruse the volumes of fiction and nonfiction available to them. Below you will find what you need to do research, access information, or find a book to read, for research or just for pleasure:
To find PRINT (book) sources start at THE OPAC:
This is our online catalog. It will tell you all print and AV materials we own in the library at Bishop Kearney. It will also tell you if they are available for checkout or not. Click on the link above and it will take you to the search page. Enter in what you are looking for by topic in the subject line, or if you know the specific title or author you would like to look up, enter that in the title or author line. You will then see the list of print sources available to you. Write down the call number information and title of the source and give it to the librarian to direct you or help you find it.
To find PRINT sources outside of the Bishop Kearney Library, i.e. your local public library or other high school and college libraries, search the following links:
Monroe County Library This will search for your title or topic in every public library in Monroe County and give you the contact information for each site. Remember your library card!
Five Systems This link will help you search holdings in member libraries in the Greater Rochester Area. It will connect you to school libraries throughout the area; however, to access these items you must check with your librarian. They are not readily available upon your search.
World Cat This link will search holdings in all libraries in your community from high schools to universities and colleges locally and worldwide. However, availability to these holdings could be restricted depending upon location and access restrictions.
