Information for International Students


PittCat PittCat is the main searching tool for all of the materials owned by the University Library System (ULS), including articles, books, ebooks, journal articles, ejournals, audio and video, digital images, government documents, microfilm and movies.

Searching using Subjects

All books in PittCat are labeled with Subjects to help users quickly find related titles. 


Subjects describe the main topics covered in a book, as shown by the headings in the red box. All subjects are linked to other materials on that same topic. Simply clicking on a subject will do a search and retrieve other materials on that topic. Subjects can also suggest alternative search terms.

PittCat Call Number Browse

PittCat allows browsing for print books by call numbers. To begin, go to the PittCat Browse and select "Browse by Library of Congress call numbers." Below, you can see the results for HV 6430.

Note: ebooks are not included in the call number search, as they are not cataloged with call numbers.
