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.
KEYWORD SEARCH (books on a subject or topic)
A keyword search finds search terms in any part of the catalog record (e.g., title, author, subject heading, etc.).
Note: The best way to perform a keyword search in the CATQuest version of the Library Catalog is to use the Advanced Search function.
Sample Search in Advanced Search mode:
LITERARY CRITICISM FOR A WRITER'S WORKS
To find all books in the library about a literary author (including, but not limited to literary criticism), eliminate "criticism interpretation" from the search above.
Find a useful book in the stacks? Browse in that area to discover other books that might be useful.
Bring book/s to the Circulation Desk, located next to the library's entrance. Your student ID serves as your library card. The loan period for undergraduate students is 4 weeks. You may request a renewal if you still need the book/s after the due date.
Check out as many books as you need.
If a book you need is checked out, you may Recall the book from the person who has it. The Library will contact you when the book is returned, and will be held for you at the Circulation Desk.
