find books using the library catalog

Find Books on Your Own

The Library Catalog locates books, journals (not articles), microfilm, dvds, cds, and U.S. documents (1976->) owned by the UVM Libraries. There are two versions of the catalog: CATQuest version and the Classic Library Catalog.

CATQuest is a Google-like “meta” academic search engine designed to search broadly and return very large sets of results. Search the Library Catalog (with a different search interface) and lots (not all) of the content in databases subscribed to by the library. Sign-in (upper right of CATQuest screen) to view the most content.

Note:  The best way to perform a keyword search in the CATQuest version of the Library Catalog, is to use the "Advanced Search" function.

HELP: The CATQuest User Guide serves as an introduction to the discovery tool CATQuest.   How to Search CATQuest is a guide for finding books in the UVM Libraries (the Library Catalog).
