What is the Library Catalog?

The Library Catalog is a big, broad database of everything that the library owns. Its algorithm takes your search terms and returns results ranked by relevance. These results may include one or more of the following:

  • Records of books that are available in the library, with location information and other details.
  • Links to online eBooks.
  • Links to online articles from periodicals, including newspapers, magazines and peer-reviewed journals.
  • Links to academic eVideos.

To get started:

  1. Think about your topic and describe it in a sentence, as if you were talking to a friend; pick out a few key terms, and enter them in the Search box.
  2. After you you get your results, you can refine them.
  3. As you continue searching, read over what you find and note additional key words and search terms to try.

Example searches general topics

Your search terms—key words or phrases—and how you combine them, are the first step in searching for the results you want. Examples:

As you read the content in books, eBooks and articles, or watch eVideos, keep a list of important concepts and new terms to try in further searches.
