Using the Library Catalog

Tips for Searching the Library Catalog:
  • Choose the search scope by selecting either UI and Summit (items owned by UI and member libraries); UI Only (items owned by UI); Everything (items owned worldwide) or EBSCO (articles and other items in our EBSCO databases).   
  • Limiting your search: Start with a basic search and once you find a book that seems to be about your topic, you can use the format and/or other options located on the left to further narrow your search.
  • On the Advanced Search page, the year, language, and location (to name a few options) of items can be limited.
  • Subject headings can be a great way to narrow in on your topic.
