When to Use the Online Catalog

The catalog is your main access point to locate physical materials found within the library, as well as eBooks and eAudiobooks. Print books, eBooks, print journals, DVDs, audiobooks, and government publications can all be found by conducting a keyword, author, title, or subject search in the catalog. You may also find Internet resources in the catalog. Click here to access IRSC's online library catalog

The catalog search will look for words in the title, abstract, major subject headings, and (sometimes) tables of content. When searching the catalog, it is important to remember that you are not searching the full text of these items. For this reason, you will get a much smaller, but more precise, return on a search than you would in a database or Internet search. If you have a very narrow search term, you will need to use broader terms to find materials on the subject. 

Catalog Tips

Too many results? Narrow your search by adding a keyword.

Original Search Narrower Search
Business business ethics, business culture, etc.
Management hospital management, long term care management

 

Not enough results? Broaden your search by taking away keywords or looking for synonyms.

Original Search Broader Search
SWOT analysis
business performance, measure business, health care (or entertainment or food, etc.) industry
