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 ("linear algebra")
- Truncation – use ? after the root of a word to find all its
variants (math? finds math, maths, mathematics...)
- Browse the Subject(s) field in records to find the right words
for searches. (Example: Try doing a keyword search for math? history
then look at the subject(s) field in several records. You’ll see that
the subject term is "Mathematics -- History." Click the subject heading to
find more records with this subject.)
- Revise and refine your searches.
- 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. The Location field will also tell you whether or not a book can be checked out. A book that's shelved in Marx Library Reference cannot usually be checked out, while one in Marx Library Bookstacks can.
The Marx Library owns a number of electronic books. You can search SOUTHcat (Springer and some ebrary titles are in the catalog) for titles, subjects or keywords, or you can go to the native interface for these books. The following vendors are most useful for Math and Statistics.
The University Library subscribes to Springer's 2005-2010 English/International ebook collection with access for one year to book series back to 1997. Sort your results by date so that the books we have access to will appear first. Requires USA ID.
