Mary Livermore Library
Unit 4: Searching for Resources

Introduction
In this unit you will learn to find books in the Library by using the online catalog, BraveCat. You will learn to complete keyword, author, and title searches. BraveCat is accessed via the World Wide Web. No login or password is necessary. Go to the Library's webpage at www.uncp.edu/library/. Click the BraveCat link. Click the Search BraveCat link.

 

BraveCat provides a number of ways to search for materials in the Library. The most common searches are Keyword, Author, and Title.

 

NOTE: Searching by Subject can be very difficult because subject searching uses a very specific language called Library of Congress Subject Headings. You may want to use the keyword search instead of the subject search.
