Search Reminders

The "Subject" search field finds resources about a particular topic.

Search "Author" (Last Name, First Name) to find:

  • biographies
  • criticism
  • books the author has written

The "Keyword" search field only matches the words you entered to the words in the book's record.

Google looks for your keywords in the website, and sometimes those websites aren't what you need. The catalog does the same except it's not searching the whole book; just the record about the book.

Accessing the Library Catalog

You can find books, ebooks and other items in the Library Catalog from any Internet-connected device.  **If you are off campus, you may need to log into your MySam or Blackboard account before going to the Library's webpage.

You can access the catalog through the Library's homepage, at Books & More -or- click on the sidebar link under Research then "Books & More (Catalog)".
