CATQuest is a search engine that provides information about, and access to a wide variety of materials from the UVM Libraries and beyond. To look for books that are available in the library or from the library, please do the following:
** The most comprehensive resource for locating books is a database that UVM subscribes to, called WorldCat.
When using WorldCat and other larger catalogs of books, use Interlibrary Loan to order materials of importance to you, that we do not own. First, make sure it is something that you really need.
Your professor may ask you to find edited books on a topic, or you may find a reference to a book chapter in an edited book in a bibliography or in a research database.
Edited books are compilations of chapters that are written by different authors on a specific topic; the editors compile the chapters and write an introduction explaining the content of the book and how the chapters are related.
To specifically locate edited books in the Library Catalog, it can be useful to use the term "edited" as one of your search terms.
The recommended way to locate a known book chapter in an edited book in the Library Catalog is to search the library catalog for the BOOK TITLE, not the chapter title.
