Evans Library Catalog

Search the Library Catalog for print books and government documents. Subjects are named in the Library Catalog using the Library of Congress Subject Headings. Locate print books on the fourth floor of the Evans Library using the call number indicated in the Library Catalog record.

Catalog Search Tips

To Search the Catalog:

  1. Click the Catalog tab on the library's website and enter the word or words you want to find.
  2. Choose a field from the drop-down menu. All FIelds looks in all indexed fields within a record.  All other choices (Title, Journal Title, Author, Subject, Call Number, ISBN/ISSN, Series) target specified fields within a record.
  3. Click Find.

Additional search tips:

  • Most words in the catalog’s records are indexed and therefore searchable.
  • Boolean operators AND, +, OR, NOT, and may be used to narrow or expand searches.
  • Use truncation/wildcard symbols to replace any number of characters (*) or a single character (?).
  • The most precise search is a Subject search using a term from the Library of Congress Subject Headings.
  • Click on links (subjects, authors, and more) in the catalog record to continue searching.
  • Search results may be cited, e-mailed, texted or exported into RefWorks.
  • Click Advanced Search to limit results by call number (LCSH or SuDocs), publication year, language, and format.
