Find Books, Ebooks, Audiobooks, and Research Resources

 
 
 

Finding Books in the Library

To search for a book, start with the Library Online Catalog.

 

Visit catalog.austinisd.org/akins.

You can also reach this page by signing in at the portal and choosing the AISD Libraries tile. If you do that, you won't need to log in again for any other library resources.

It looks like this, and you can search by title, author, subject, and keyword:

From this page you can also click on the tiles to search for ebooks and to do research using our online databases. Our digital resources include the types of resources students use in college, and they are a great way to practice doing research without using just google.
