Finding Books and Videos in the Library Catalog

How do I use the library catalog?

There are several paths:

  1. Select the “Books and More” tab on the search box on the libraries main page.

         2. There is also a “Books and More” link under Quick Links.

         3. If you are already engaged in OneSearch, you can choose  Books, Audio, or Video from the Item Type dropdown  box beneath the search box.

How do I limit my search in OneSearch to a particular format like films or sound recordings?

Go to Advanced Search, and use the Material Type pull-down.

How do I refine my search in OneSearch?

After completing a search, use the options on the left-side. You can refine by a number of options, such as Full Text Online, Available in Library, Author/Creator, Subject/Topic, Resource Type, and more.
