Searching the Online Catalog
To find books on a specific topic, use the Advanced Search, and select the Subject option.
To locate primary
sources, add terms such as Sources, Correspondence,
Diaries, Personal narratives, Oral
or Interviews to your subject search.
To request that books be retrieved for you from the regular shelves, from Basement Storage or from Storage North, login to your Catalog account. [ If you have not requested materials previously, click on “Create New Account”.] When you find the book you need, click on Request.
For materials not available in Milner Library, use the “Catalog” link, but expand your search by choosing the “All I-Share Libraries” option. Materials from I-Share libraries may also be requested.
To search for books and other materials in libraries worldwide, use WorldCat -- available under Shortcuts Databases.
