To find any item in the library's collection using the catalogue just type what you want find in the search box and then click Go.

You can use the drop down box to allow you to search for title or author.

  • Searching Catalogue will search everything - This is the Catalogue's standard search function and any items that match all the words you enter will be shown, not matter where they are in the item's record.
  • If you want to limit your search, to just the title of an item for instance, you will need to use the Advanced Search function.

The drop down on the right allows you to limit your search to a particular library or you can search for results in all the libraries. 

Click - you will get a list of all the resources at RNN Libraries which match the results of your search.  Each title is highlighted in blue as it is a link - which will display more information.  Scroll until you find something you are interested in.  You can also see the availability of the item and where it is located.
