  21. 21. How to Search AGRICOLA  The AGRICOLA database is organized into two files which can be searched separately or together. One file is the NAL Catalog, which contains citations to books, audiovisuals, and other materials. The other file is the Article Citation Database, which includes citations (many with abstracts) to journal articles, book chapters, and reports.  To find out if the Library has the source identified, check Felix Online Catalog for books, audiovisuals and periodical titles (see How to Access Periodicals for more information). Check at the Information Desk for assistance in locating government publications.
  22. 22. For a subject use the Quick Search box to search for a keyword, use Browse to identify a more specific subject heading. For example, browsing for quot;mosquitoquot; will allow you to choose quot;mosquito-borne diseasesquot; or quot;mosquito control,quot; depending on the focus of your research
  23. 23. To search for a specific article, author, or journal  use the Search option to select the desired type of search and combine searches. Use Browse to determine the format of authors' names and journal titles.  In Search, use AND to narrow your search and OR to expand your search.
  24. 24. To Display Results :  Title  Author  Source Info lines to determine if APSU has immediate access to the item (see How to Access Periodicals for more information).  The Location, Call Number, and other holdings information on this screen reflect the item's availability at the National Agriculture Library, not APSU.
