To find books and government documents in USA Libraries' collections, use SOUTHcat: USA Libraries' Catalog.

  • Catalog tips and tricks:
    • Keyword searches – use quotation marks to hold phrases together ("proposal writing")
    • Truncation – use ? after the root of a word to find all its variants (rac? finds race, racial, races)
    • Browse the Subject(s) field in records to find the right words for searches. (Example: Try doing a keyword search for resume?, then look at the subject(s) field in several records. You’ll see that the subject term could be Résumés (Employment)." Click the subject heading to find more records with this subject.)
  • Revise and refine your searches. Combine words or phrases.
  • Watch for repeating call numbers and browse stacks in that area.
  • Pay attention to the Location and Status fields. You will need this information to locate the item in the library.
