  • Searching cataLION is more like Google, with the best matches appearing on the first pages.
  • For a simple search use title words, an author's name, or keywords describing your topic.
  • "Less is More!" Avoid using "a" "an"  & "the"
  • cataLION automatically truncates both left and right. Example: typing in rain will find both rainfall and brain.
  • Log into your cataLION account to place holds, create lists of books, see what you have checked out and if you owe any fines.
  • Use the cataLION advanced search to limit your results to particular types of materials

If you cannot locate what you need in cataLION, try to find materials in other libraries, which you can be obtained through interlibrary loan.

WorldCat is the most comprehensive catalog of U.S. and world libraries and is more appropriate for upper level classes.  WorldCat includes direct links to Interlibrary Loan to make requesting a book easier.  It isn't always possible to get a book in WorldCat--for example, we can't borrow outside the U.S.
