PITTCAT Classic Basics

Using PITTCAT Classic can save you a lot of time looking for journal or magazine titles, as shown in the example to the left. The catalog record you find in Pittcat Classic will indicate both print and ejournal holdings.

Instead of conducting a journal title search, you can use the down arrow to search for a book title, or author name. To find materials that a specific author has written, type in the author's last name, followed by a space, and their first name or initials. 

Using PITTCAT Classic, you can also  browse the catalog by call number, or search by keywords or subject headings. Other ways to narrow your search include selecting a specific Pitt campus, or material format, like DVDs or electronic materials.
