Find Your Next Great Book!

With over 1,000,000 books on BIBLIO, it can be sometimes be tough to find just the right book. But we have a bunch of ways to make it a bit easier.

TIP: You can search the entire inventory of Biblio booksellers quickly and easily by using the search box at the top of any page. Here you can search either by keyword, author, title, or ISBN.

How Do I Find a Specific Book?

If you have the ISBN, you can plug in the keyword field of any BIBLIO search box. But otherwise, just provide all the information you can, and you're sure to find what you're looking for.

If you want to get super specific and really drill down into all of the filters and options available, just go to the Advanced Search page!

Why Didn't My Search Return a Result?

If your BIBLIO search doesn't return any results, here are some suggestions:

  • Check the spelling of all the words in your search. A typo in the search criteria could be messing you up.
  • Try broadening your search criteria. Use fewer words from the title (e.g., instead of Travels With Charley: In Search Of America, try Travels with Charley), or search the author's last name only.
  • Maybe it is just a hard-to-find book! Adding the book to your Want List will let us notify you as soon as a copy of that book gets added to BIBLIO.

What's a Want List?

If you search for a specific book on BIBLIO and don't find a copy, you can set up a 'Want' and we'll notify you when a copy becomes available.

You can visit your Want List and add or edit your Wants anytime from your customer account menu.

When you set up a Want, our software will automatically scan every one of the hundreds of thousands of books added to our system every day. When a bookseller adds a book that matches the search criteria you enter, we'll send you an email notification with a link to the listing!
