​Faculty Finding Tools

Using the Library Catalog and the San Diego Circuit

  • Both resources provide the quickest method for receiving print materials.
  • Faculty may use the Catalog to determine whether USD owns a particular book, journal, reporter, etc.
  • If you cannot find a book in the library catalog, the San Diego Circuit catalog is a second option.
    • What is the San Diego Circuit?

      • Please see the San Diego Circuit for more information.
    • Requesting books from the Circuit:

      • Indicate that you are affiliated with "U of San Diego."
      • Enter your MySanDiego credentials or your name and barcode number (located on the back of your USD ID card).
      • Select "USD Legal Research Center" as your pickup location.
