Learning Objectives: 

  • Define the term “catalog” when used in a library or research context
  • Search for and locate items using UNCG Libraries catalog
  • Distinguish between basic and advanced searching options in the UNCG Libraries catalog 

A library catalog searches for items owned by a specific library, which includes many different resources. At UNCG Libraries, you can find our catalog within the red box on the library homepage; you can use this tab to search for anything owned by UNCG Libraries. The UNCG Libraries Catalog is not the same as our databases, which you are more likely to use to find articles. This module is going to cover how to use the UNCG Libraries catalog to search for books, electronic resources, multimedia sources, and more.  

Be sure to also review the Navigating UNCG Libraries website module to find out more about how to best navigate the UNCG Libraries webpage.
