About the Catalog | How to Search the Catalog

The search box in the upper right-hand corner of the website performs a “Full Text” search, searching all of the fields. To search by specific fields, go to “Advanced Search.”

Advanced Search: Use “Full Text” to search all of the fields. Certain fields can also be searched individually by using the drop-down menu. To search by more than one field at a time, click on the “Add Criteria” button.

You may search the catalog in either English or Arabic (although not all fields contain information in both languages; see Cataloging Conventions for a description of each field). To search in Arabic, you must enable the Arabic characters on your computer.
