**Finding Books and AV Materials**

To find books and AV materials at Albright, check our *cataLION* (Online Public Access Catalog).

If you cannot locate what you need in the OPAC, try some of the other catalogs listed to find materials in other libraries, which can be interlibrary loaned.

*cataLION* search tips:

- The
*cataLION*online catalog searches like Google. It tries to match as many of your terms as possible with the best matches appearing o 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 bothfall and b*rain*.**rain** - 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.
- To do a more comprehensive search, use the
*cataLION*advanced search option.
