The Library Catalog

You can search the Library Catalog to find books in the NFCC library, as well as electronic books in our online library. Scroll down to access tutorials that will show you how to search the print and electronic collections

If you need a book that isn't in our library, we can borrow the book from another library for you through Interlibrary Loan.

Search the Library Catalog to find books, eBooks, DVDs and audio books. While it is possible to find journal articles using the Library Catalog, we suggest that you use the Databases (instead of the Catalog) to search for articles. 


In the Catalog's Search Box, you can type in keywords or a title or an author's name. Then click on the orange Search button.

Example:

 


Below the Search Box is a Limit to: drop-down menu. Here, you can choose the type of resource you're looking for, such as Books or eBooks. (Audio/Visual Material refers to DVDs and eVideos). 

Example:

Search the Library Catalog for Books

- The following example shows a Library Catalog search for the keyword "asthma" to find print books in the library.

Example:


- You can find more information about the book by clicking on the Details link.

Example:


- Use the call number to find the book on the shelf, or simply ask a library employee for help finding the book.

Example:

Search the Library Catalog for Electronic Books

- The following example shows a Library Catalog search for the keyword "asthma" to find electronic books (eBooks) online.

Example:


- There are 70 search results for eBooks about asthma. We can narrow this search down by adjusting the Publication Date to produce only eBooks published after 2005. This brings the search results down to 23. When researching a medical topic, it's generally a good idea to look for newer sources of information.

Example:


- To access the eBook, click on the "View Online" link. You will then be asked to Log In with your Borrower ID and Password/PIN. (If you are not sure how to log in, please refer to these instructions.)
