Locating Materials at Yale

The collections of the Yale University Library are represented in multiple online catalogs that have been converted to electronic form from card catalogs and other special catalogs. Together, Orbis, Morris (the Law Library catalog), and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL ) constitute the Yale University Library online catalog. Use these catalogs to determine what materials (books, journals, archival collections, etc.) are held by Yale, and where these items are located.

Orbis in the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC).
