Introduction to DELCAT

To find a book on your topic, your first stop should be the Library's catalog.

If you've ever shopped at or another online retailer, you know that a catalog is a searchable, organized list of all of the items that a store (or library) has available with information on how to access those items.

Our Library's catalog is called DELCAT. You can search DELCAT to identify the books, DVDs, maps, government documents, and journals to which the Library provides access. However, you cannot search for individual articles in DELCAT. For these, you will use the Library's databases, which will be covered in the "Finding Articles" section of the tutorial.
