Great question. Our Find Books research guide will teach you how to use WorldCat Library Catalog to find books and other materials.

In your case, you should type Diary of Anne Frank in the Search box.  All of the materials that include those words will appear. You will notice that the actual title of the book you want is Diary of a Young Girl (by Anne Frank), but because our catalog searches titles, authors, subjects and keywords all at once, you will still be able to find your book.

To get the book from the book shelf, look at the the availability information at the bottom of the results box. This will show you the library (either MJC Library or Columbia College), the Call Number, which is the book's address on the shelves, and whether or not the book is available for check out.
