Social Sciences Projects: Library Catalog

This guide acts as a front door for those doing research in social sciences fields

About this page

Use Bobcat, the library's catalog, to search for books, journals and other print materials, videos, sound recordings, e-books, e-journals, databases, and indexes in our local libraries and special collections.

Note that journals, magazines, databases, and indexes will be listed by title only, and individual articles will not be listed (for individual articles, see the Article Finding tab).

Things to look for in BobCat

  • Simple vs. advanced searching
  • Facets: to further narrow your results by category
  • Pieces of a catalog record: which library is it in? What is its call number? Is it available?
  • "GetIt" button: searches for e-text, shows location, link to ILL
  • Saving your record for later: Your e-shelf!
