Finding Books: Finding Books (by Using WINDOW)

This guide describes briefly the process of finding books available for borrowing by Bluffton University students, faculty and staff.


WINDOW is the single search box on the library's homepage.

WINDOW searches many research databases as well as the Bluffton Library Catalog. It is the place to begin for finding journal articles, but it can also be used for finding books (as an alternative to the methods described on the other page of this guide).

You can use the WINDOW search box on the library’s homepage, or use the widget below. Enter your search terms and click on the Search button.

This will take you to the main page for WINDOW.

Your results will include both books and articles. To limit your search to the Bluffton Library Catalog, look at the column on the left-hand side of the screen and check the box for Bluffton Catalog.

To expand your search to OhioLINK, click on the Search button at the bottom of the OhioLINK widget on the right side of the screen.
