Finding Books and Journals Using The Online Catalog

When clicking on the catalog link, you are brought to the "Advanced Search" screen, which you should use if you want to search for books about a particular topic. If you know the exact title of a book or journal that you want to look up, you might want to try the "Browse Search" for more precise results.

In addition to searching by "words or phrase" (keyword), you may find it useful to search by the following:

  • Title keyword
  • Author keyword
  • Periodical title keyword

Since Mississippi State University shares its catalog with other institutions in the area, you can limit your search by library.
