How to find a book

How to Find a Book at SJR State

To find a book at the SJR State Library, search the SJR State Library Catalog

1. Type in a title, an author's name, or some keywords that describe the information you're looking for.

2. Select what type of search you want to do:

Keyword will search for your keywords anywhere they appear in a record.

Title will search for your keywords ONLY in the title field of a record.

Author will search for your keywords ONLY in the author's name field of a record.

Subject Heading will search for your keywords ONLY in the LC Subject Headings that were assigned to that record. Subject Headings are words or phrases that are consistently used in library catalogs worldwide to describe what an item is about. They do not always use the most popular words to describe things though, so if a Subject Heading search returns 0 results don't quit - do an Anywhere search instead. 

Series searches are tricky. Unless you already know what to do with one, don't use this option. 

ISBN searches are useful if you have the ISBN of a book for which you want an exact copy. ISBN searches will not find other editions of the same title, so only use it when you want the exact edition of a book. 

If you need further assistance, please contact a librarian at any SJR State campus.
