Finding Books

Use QCat to search the books, videos, journals or newspapers that are available in print or online at the library.

Search tips:

  • Keyword search: like Google, terms are automatically combined with 'AND.'
  • Keyword boolean search: allows you to combine search words and phrases (using AND and OR). Use quotation marks for phrases (e.g. "international relations.")
  • To discover books about a particular person, search QCat by subject heading, e.g. pierre trudeau.
