Library Catalogue (OPAC) is the Library's search tool used to locate books, subscribed e-books and print journals. You can find the Catalogue Search box on the Library's homepage to conduct quick searches for a book. To find more search options, we recommend that you click the Catalogue button in the quick links section on our homepage.

Follow the steps below to search and locate printed books in the Library:

Step 1: Go to https://opac.xjtlu.edu.cn. You may log in using your XJTLU account (same login information as your university email account) by clicking 'My Lib' tab.

Step 2: Simply search the catalogue using key words relevant to your desired item (title, author, subject etc.). 

Step 3: Click on your desired item on the search results to see its detailed information such as its call number or location in the library. 

Step 4: The detailed information will display the floor where your item is located on; then use the call number to locate the item on the library’s bookshelves (look for labels on the bookshelf relevant to your call number).

Step 5: If all the copies of the book are on loan and you still wish to borrow it, please use the Reservation Function in the Library Catalogue System. Check the related FAQs below to learn more about it.
