What can the Catalog do for Me?

When you know the name of an article or want to find a book the catalog, Worldcat Discovery, is a great place to look! You will be able to find details about the resource and access via our links, call numbers, or Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Searching the Catalog

Searching the catalog allows me to find not just books, but also articles, DVD's, and more. When I search the catalog I am also searching across institutions worldwide.

  • If I run a search for "st john's wort" AND anxiety in the catalog I can:
    • Use filters to limit my needs - for instance I could select just the last 5 or 10 years and E-Books only.
    • Take advantage of subject headings to find resources about a specific topic.
      • Take a look at the title "Integrative Medicine" by Rakel and click on "View Description" to see subject headings.
