Transcript

  • 1. The Library’s catalog looks like this when you first open it. If you already know the title of your item, there is a better way to look for it.
  • 2. First click on the downward arrow and select Title Browse .
  • 3. Then click in the text box and put in the title. Remember: if the title starts with the , a , or an , leave those words off and start with the next word in the title. Example: The Origin of the Universe Type in origin of the universe
  • 4. A list of titles appears. Find the title you were searching for and click on the name.
  • 5. First note collection – the area in the library where the item is located. There are many collections, e.g. Adult Non-fiction , Young Adult Non-fiction , etc., so be careful to note where you are supposed to go .
  • 6. Note and write down the call number . Fiction is listed by the author’s last name. Nonfiction is arranged by Dewey Decimal numbers, e.g. 758.2
  • 7. Very Important : Check the status of the item. If the item is Checked Out , Lost , Missing , In Cataloging , or anything other than Checked In , you will not find it on the shelf .
  • 8.
    • Now you know how to find an item by title .
    • TIP: Even if you aren’t sure of the spelling, at least start the word and you will probably get close when the list comes up.
    • Ask a Reference Librarian for help if you get stuck. That’s what we’re here for.
