Know the author, but don't know the title?

Fri, October 2, 2009

When searching for a book with just the author's name, narrow your results in our UCM Catalog or Next Generation Melvyl by:

-Searching your results page using Ctrl+F to look for the books in the general subject area of interest (i.e. Psychology, Economics, Cognitive Science)

-Narrowing the type of resources on your results page using the limiting option on the side bar. You can limit by type (book, journal, or article) or even year

Still have a long list of results?

Try using Amazon to search for a list of books by that author. If you find the title of the book you want, do a search in our UCM Catalog or Next Generation Melvyl using that title.

And of course, if we don't have what you're looking for here, you can request the resource from another library, through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), using the UC-eLinks button.

Learn more about this process by looking at our website, coming to the Services Desk on the 2nd floor, or by looking for the students in the bright red shirts with the "i." We're here to help! (:
