Information Technology: Find Books

Catalogue Search Tips

Keywords are the key to finding relevant information, in the library catalogue, online database or www.  Many databases divide their material into rigid subject headings, so choosing an appropriate subject keyword can make the difference between finding or not finding information.  Try the listed keywords in the library catalogue (for book, reference, course reserve, serial, thesis and CD Rom access), or in the linked sites and databases.
