Nursing: Find Books

Anna Maria College Library Catalog

To find a specific book or to find a book on a specific topic, your best bet is to start first with our library resources.  Then work your way out, electronically and geographically.  Here are the steps and links to follow.  At each level, you can log in with your library card and make an electronic request.


  1. Search the Mondor-Eagen Library catalog.
  2. If we don't have what you need, expand your search to include all of the C/W MARS libraries in Central Massachusetts.

If you still cannot find the material, try searching for it on WorldCat Discovery OR submit an interlibrary loan request to us.  

Finding Print Reference Books

Don't forget to check our Reference section!  It's the first set of shelves you see when you walk into the library.  Here you will find dictionaries, encyclopedias, as well as other relevant sources to your area of study. All reference material includes REF that precedes the beginning of the call number. If you need help in your search, please feel free to ask. 

Some titles include
