Information Resources & Library Collections

With extensive collections of print and e-books, tens of thousands of print and online journals, and hundreds of databases, we have many resources to support your classes and your research.

To find books, videos, federal government documents, and archival resources

  • Search Davidson Library WorldCat
    Davidson Library WorldCat is the library's catalog and discovery system. In addition to information about books and videos, it includes millions of citations to articles as well. You can also use it to expand your search to include books held by libraries worldwide.

We offer faculty generous borrowing privileges for books and other materials.
