The online catalog has several ways to search. The quickest way is to click on the Online Catalog link on the library home page (  The first box you see is the Quick Search box - simply type in your search terms, choose one of the search modes or leave it at Words and Phrases.  Click the search button - you'll either get one record or list of records if there are any hits.  It will tell you if you don't have any matches to your terms.  That could be because we either don't have anything on your subject or, more likely, your term should be changed or we have nothing on a term that narrowly focused.

Anytime you need help ask for a librarian's help, use LibAnswers to ask a question.  You may also like to look through the video tutorials and written directions we have prepared that will help you use the online catalog effectively (see the LibGuide link below).
