The cataLION online catalog searches like Google. It tries to match as many of your terms as possible with the best matches appearing on the first pages.
The database accommodates truncation with the use of the asterisk. An asterisk can be used at the start or end of a word to truncate. Searching for “bat*” returns all words starting with “bat” and searching for “*man” returns all words ending in “man.”
The database is searchable by title, author, subject or keyword options. When searching by keyword mode only input the keywords and ignore the prepositions, articles, etc to make the search more efficient.

In preparation for the renovation, library staff and a small portion of the collection was moved to the Center for Computing & Mathematics (CCM). Much of the library's circulating book collection is now housed in a nearby warehouse. If you need a book from the warehouse, you can place a hold on it, and library staff will retrieve it for you.
Placing a Hold
If you want to place a hold for an item that is on a list of results, click the Place a Hold link that appears under the item. If you have clicked on an individual item, the Place a Hold link is on the right hand side of the screen.
Log in with your LionLINK credentials.
To complete the process, click Confirm Hold.
