Finding Books

Online Catalog

Search the online catalog for books and other materials that you may need.

Searching Tips:

Boolean Logic
Use AND, OR, or NOT to group search terms for the online catalog.

Types of Searches (Keyword, title, subject, etc.)

Keyword finds your search term anywhere. Subject, Title, Author, etc. searches are more powerful because they search only in those parts of the database.

Subject Headings Use Subject search to find materials on a specific topic. LC Subject searches cover a standardized list of terms and do not search other fields, such as author, table of contents, note, etc.

Truncation  Use an asterisk* to truncate or cut off the endings of words. The computer will search for variations of a word by adding an asterisk.
