You can quickly flip through library parts in the object tool by clicking on the Next and Previous Library Part buttons in the Preview and Positioning pane.

If your not sure which Folder a specific object (library part) is hiding, you can search through all the loaded libraries by clicking on Folder View in the Settings Dialog, and changing to Find Library Parts
Use the Find Library Parts field under the Folder View drop down menu to search all loaded libraries for specific objects, by typing in a Keyword: and hitting the Find button.
