About Library Catalogs
Online library catalogs are searchable lists of information about books, periodicals, and other items held by libraries.
- Subject heading
- Keyword (a word that appears anywhere in the catalog record)
Advanced search by:
- Date of publication
- Search by keyword for articles inside a book, chapter headings, illustrators, etc. Note: Keyword searching does not usually search the entire text of a book -- only the text of the catalog record.
- Use language limit features to see books only in the language you choose.
- Search in the Hebrew alphabet, if possible, and try a variation of spellings (SEE OTHER PAGE).
- Use WorldCat to search almost every major library in North America.

Printed Library Catalogs
Some libraries have printed library catalogs for cataloged collections that are not yet listed in online catalogs. These printed catalogs may be available at the library itself and/or at other libraries.
