Getting Started: Basic Searching

You can begin your Pittcat+ search on the library homepage

In this box, you should enter your search terms and click on the Search button.

The results of your search query will be displayed in a results listing like the example below.

The Result List will include articles, books, e-materials, and images. Click on the title of an item for more detailed information about the item, such as an abstract or the shelf location for a book. For articles, if full-text content is available, you can get the full-text by clicking on the item title or the "full text online" link. 

PITTCat Classic

PITTCat Classic is our library catalog. It will help you find books, magazines, videos, and other whole items in our collection.  PITTCat Classic does not lead you to individual articles, but will let you search for a particular journal.
