This is the place to start if you need resources related to school curriculum or teaching K-12 classroom subjects.

        Introduction

Use LibrarySearch to search for books.  There is a "quick" search box below to get you started.  If you are looking for a specific book (or other known item), type the title in the box, ignoring initial articles.  For a specific author, type the last name first.  If St. Thomas doesn't own an item, but another CLIC library does, click on the "request item" check mark to request it.  If you are unable to find an item in LibrarySearch, you might search the WorldCat database, and request items from it on interlibrary loan (ILLiad).

CLICsearch

LibrarySearch is the library catalog of six private colleges and universities in the Twin Cities, including Saint Thomas. Books from other campuses can be requested online and delivered to the St. Thomas library of your choice..
