Credo Reference: Philosophy

 

To find books and AV materials in the Library, use our Online Public Access Catalog (CataLion).

Search tips for CataLion:

  • The 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 will do automatic truncation, both left and right, so truncation symbols are not needed, e.g., typing in rain will find both rainfall and brain.
  • The database is searchable by title, author, subject or keyword. When searching by keyword mode only input keywords and ignore prepositions, articles, etc. to make the search more efficient.
  • To do a more comprehensive search use the CataLION advanced search
