Mae'r dudalen hon hefyd ar gael yn Gymraeg


Using the library catalogue to find books

You can search iFind, the library catalogue,  for print books and ebooks, as well as many other resources. When you are searching for a specific book we recommend you use the author's surname and one or two key words from the title to search.  You can then filter by "Full text online" to find an ebook.  It's also helpful to select "Books and more" rather than searching from "Everything".

There is a guide to iFind below this text.  There is also a guide to finding your books on the library shelves.
