You can search by keyword, author, title, ISBN and LC class searches, as well as limit by format, date, publisher, and language. Results can be sorted by date, title, of LC call number, either in ascending or descending order. Individual records are displayed in hypertext format, making it possible to jump to other works on the same subject, call number, or by the same author, als well as to link to online texts and images, and view by the MARC (MAchine Readable-Cataloging) formats of any record. Search the catalogs using Basic search or Guided search.

  • Library of Congress Information System (LOCIS) [telnet]
    Offers access to catalog records for books, microforms, serials, cartographic items, music, visual materials (films, filmstrips, posters, prints, photographs), computer files, manuscripts, thesauri of names and subject terms used in cataloging records, catalog records from some other research libraries, and records for some bibliographies. LOCIS provides browsable indexes, keyword searching, Boolean combinations, various display options, set creation, and advanced features for limiting sets. Connecting to LOCIS requires the use of Telnet or TN3270 software.
