 LIUCAT Search Tips:

  • Click on the Basic tab to search for a single keyword.
  • Click on the Advanced tab to search for multiple keywords.
  • Click on the List A-Z tab to search for an exact title, author, or subject.
  • Write down the Collection and Call Number of any book you would like to view.
  • Search for all variants of a company name - e.g., search for IBM as well as International Business Machines.
  • Always search last name, first name for exact name searches.
  • If no results - Check your spelling.
  • If too many results - Search using the exact company name - e.g. Walt Disney Company, not Disney.
  • If we do not have the title you want, request it via InterLibrary Loan (allow 7-14 days for delivery).
  • If you must get a book immediately, ask the Reference Librarian to help you check other libraries in the area.
  • The New York Public Library or the Brooklyn Public Library may have the item you are looking for.
  • The Reference Librarian can provide access to other academic libraries via an ALB or METRO card.
  • ASK For HELP.  The Reference Desk is staffed by a Faculty Librarian during all hours that the library is open.
