Finding a multi-volume_source

  1. 1. Finding a multi-volume source using the Library Catalog HCC Brandon Library
  2. 2. This is not a science! • Since the book database does NOT index books by number of volumes in the set, it is not really set up to FIND a multi-volume set of books. • The following is an effort to increase your chances of finding a multi-volume set.
  3. 3. #1 • Go to: Find Books, Articles and More • On the first line: – Type in your subject (and change the field from keyword to subject) • On the second line: – Type in Encyclopedia OR Dictionary (and change the field to title)
  4. 4. In summary, • At Find Books, Articles and More, look for your subject (1st field) and “Encyclopedia” or “Dictionary” on the second field (changed to title); change format to “books” • For a broader search, select “All Community Colleges” • In the description field, look for v or vol. followed by a number, i.e 2 v. • Remember – this search is meant only to increase your CHANCES of finding a multi-volume set of books.
