Home The Journey of a Book

The Journey of a Book

Before a new book hits the shelves and then into your hands, it takes a storied path through the labyrinth of NDSU Libraries!

The Journey of a Book at NDSU Libraries is a behind-the-scenes video that lets you follow a book from order to check-out. Learn how new books receive a barcode, a dust jacket, and a description in the library catalog. 

Every journey has a beginning. Did you know you can request resources for the NDSU Libraries collections? Subject librarians specialize in finding and sharing resources for specific majors and departments on campus. Discover who your subject librarian is and send them a message today or book a session here.

I have always imagined paradise will be a kind of library.” – Jorge Luis Borges
