Search the Library Catalog

Tips for Searching the Library Catalog:

  • Choose the search scope by selecting either UI Books, Articles, and More (all materials); UI and Summit (items owned by UI and member libraries); or Worldcat (items owned worldwide).   
  • Limiting your search: Start with a basic search and once you find a book that seems to be about your topic, you can use theformat 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.
