  • 1. ICE Library: Using the Catalog<br />Website: http://opac.libraryworld.com<br />Techniques and Tips for Successful Searches:<br /><ul><li>Search by author (last name, first name)
  • 2. Search by title (omit articles “a”, “an”, “the”)
  • 3. To browse books in the catalog, search by ‘subject includes’:
  • 4. regional cuisine (Italian, Thai…)
  • 5. a main ingredient (meat, chili peppers, grapes, chocolate)
  • 6. or items (cookies, cake, pasta, pizza)
  • 7. If you get too many results, try to be more specific or combine terms (i.e. if “desserts” returns too many books, try “desserts and fruit” or “desserts and Italy”).
  • 8. If you get too few results, try something more general (i.e. if there are too few books with the search “grilling and vegetables”, trying just “grilling”; chances are a general grilling cookbook will include some vegetable recipes too.</li></li></ul><li>Using the Catalog: Getting Started<br /> “quick search” box <br /> click ‘clear search’ at any time to return to this page.<br />Links to the library blog, selected websites for articles and recipes, and databases.<br />
  • 9. Using the Catalog:Searching for a Specific Book<br />Use the “quick search” box <br />Tip: Begin with the 1st meaningful word of the title and omit the articles “a”, “an”, and “the”.<br />Links to these presentations, blog, selected websites for articles and recipes, databases<br />Title search: select “Title Includes” from the drop down menu<br />This search will match the words you type with words appearing anywhere in a book’s title, and bring up a list of all of those books. This is the best option because it is very specific but allows for some error if you are unsure of the exact title.<br />Title Begins With: If you know the exact title, you can use “Title Begins With” to get a more specific list of books. <br />
  • 10. Using the Catalog:Searching for a Specific Book<br />Type the title or words in the title field and click “Search”.<br />
  • 11. Using the Catalog:Searching for a Specific Book<br />Click “List” or “Shelf” to change the layout of this page.<br />Click the title of the book for more details.<br />
  • 12. Using the Catalog:Key items in a book’s record<br />TIP: If you click on the author’s name (Main Entry-Personal Name) , you’ll get a list of all of the other books in the library written by this person. If you click “cake” or “cookie” you’ll get a list of all the other books in the library that are about cake or cookies.<br />Some books link to a summary, table of contents, or author’s bio. Use these to help you decide if this is the book you want.<br />Click List or Shelf to change the layout of this page<br />Write down the call number. You will use this to locate the book on the shelf.<br />Note the Branch and the Location. This will help you find the correct section of the library. The Branches are either 6th floor or 5th floor. The Locations correspond to labels on the shelves .<br />
  • 13. Using the Catalog:Searching for unknown items (browsing)<br />You just finished searching for a particular book! You can also use the catalog when you do not have a specific book in mind, but want to find out what books the library has on a given topic, or browse. <br />Instead of searching for a specific title or author, select “Subject Includes” from the drop down menu. You can also use “All words”.<br />
  • 14. Using the Catalog:Searching for unknown items (browsing)<br />Let’s say we would like books on cooking pasta.<br />TIP: What are good subject terms? <br /> regional cuisine (Italian, Thai…)<br /> a major ingredient (meat, chili peppers, grapes, chocolate)<br /> or items (cookies, cake, pasta, pizza)<br />
  • 15. Using the Catalog:Searching for unknown items (browsing)<br />The default view is “Shelf” view. Click “Item” or “List” to change.<br />Click the title of the book for more details.<br />Let’s say we would like books on cooking pasta.<br />TIP:<br />If you get too many results, try to be more specific or combine with other terms i.e. if “desserts” returns too many books, try “desserts and fruit” or “desserts and Italy”. <br />If you get too few results, try something more general (i.e. if there are too few books with the search “grilling and vegetables”, try just “grilling”; chances are a general grilling cookbook will include some vegetable recipes too.<br />
  • 16. Using the Catalog:Searching for unknown items (browsing)<br />Shelf view. Click Item or List to change<br />TIP: <br />“Add to Clipboard” saves records as you browse.<br />Use these links to move between records. Or click “Return to List”.<br />Note the Branch, Location and Call Number.<br />
  • 17. Using the Catalog:How to Use Call Numbers<br />Shelf view. Click Item or List to change<br />
  • 18. Using the Catalog:How to Use Call Numbers<br />ICE Library uses a modified version of the Library of Congress classification and call number system.<br />Each book is assigned an alphanumeric call number based on its subject focus.<br />This gives each book a unique identifier and places it on the shelf near related books.<br />
  • 19. Using the Catalog:How to Use Call Numbers<br />Each call number consists of several parts<br />In the catalog the call numbers looks like this: <br />TX723.P81 .Z35 2009<br />On the book’s spine label, it looks like this<br />COOKING – <br /> TX723.P81 .Z35<br /> 2009 <br />The numbers following the letters designate a more specific subject. 723 is Italian cooking. .P81 is pasta. Read the first part as a whole number and the next part (.P81) a letter and as a decimal. <br />This line is the Location.<br />The letters designate a major subject area. Currently, all books in the ICE Library are TX, for cooking.<br />The 3rd line places the book in alphabetical order by author. It is also read as a decimal.<br />The last line is the year of publication.<br />
  • 20. Using the Catalog:How to Use Call Numbers<br />Image these are books a shelf in the cooking section.<br />TX723 <br />.E448 1990<br />TX723<br /> .E86 <br /> 2001<br />TX723.P81<br />B69 <br />1995<br />TX723.P81<br />B7575 <br />2000<br />TX723.T1<br /> E8697 2003<br />TX758 <br />.C347 <br />1995<br />.448 is less than .86 so this book comes first <br />Same 1st &amp; 2nd line. But B69 before B7575<br />723.T1 before 758<br />723 before 723.P81<br />P before T, so 723.P81 before 723.T1<br />Sample Call Numbers &amp; Their Corresponding Subject Areas<br />TX723 General Italian Cooking<br />TX723.P81 Pasta<br />TX723.T1 Tuscan Cooking<br />TX758 Vegetarian Cooking<br />
