QCAT is the Queen's Library Online Catalogue. It is a searchable database that lists materials (books, journals, magazines, newspapers, videos, government documents, maps, microfilm and much more) found in all the libraries at Queen’s. QCAT also contains the names of electronic journals and ebooks, but does not contain articles. To locate articles, use an index/article database or Summon.
In this module, we will look at three of the most commonly used search options for finding books using QCAT: title, author, and keyword/keyword Boolean. We will examine the different parts of the library catalogue record, how to read a call number and how to locate a book in the Library.
