A little stuck? Need some help finding your way around our library catalog?
When you follow the link to the St. Pau's catalog on Library Thing, you will see a page that looks like this:
Notice that you have several options for sorting the titles and changing how things look. You can sort by title, by author, and you can change it from a list view to a cover view. In the upper right, look for the box that says "Search this library" to find a specific book or author.
When you select a specific book, or look at it in the list, you will see this:
Notice on the right the sequence of numbers and letters. These numbers and letters are the “address” of the book. The book shelves are labeled left to right with an A on the left shelf and moving right to the Z. Each line gives some information about the book.
BR - first line (general subject)
325 - second line (specific subject)
.F46 - third line (author or other information)
1981 - (year published)
When searching for your book start with the first line (alphabetic) and then the second line (numeric).
