Search the Library's catalogue by author name, title, keyword and more...

How to Search the Catalogue
  1. Open the online catalogue
  2. Click on search box on the left side of the screen
  3. Type a word or two that represents what you are looking for on the KEYWORD line. For instance, if you're looking for a book on horses, type the word "horse."
  4. Choose a category: Immediately below the typing box is a list of all possible categories to search. To choose a category, click it once. If you don't know what category to use, choose all collections.
  5. Once you have typed a word and chosen a category, click the "SEARCH NOW" button to see results.

Tips for Better Searching
  • To see more information on a particular book or item, click on the Title of the book.
  • Clicking the Author or Call Number will create a new search. For instance, if you want to see if an author of a particular title has other books available, clicking the "Author" hyperlink will display all titles by that author.
  • If there are many results, they will not all be displayed at once. Instead, they will be displayed in "pages." At the top and bottom of the results screen will be a set of hyperlinks representing several pages of results. Clicking these links will switch to a different "pages" of results.
  • Entering more than one key word implies a Boolean "AND" ( you don't have to type it, Webstacks assumes it). You may enter Boolean operators in the simple search. For example WATER OR CANADA is a valid expression.
