CPC Computer Documentation Library - Online Catalog Instructions

The Online Catalog of the CPC Computer Documentation Library can be searched using the string search or the subject search. Only one search method may be used at a time. For example, you cannot limit a string search to a particular subject by using both search fields at once.

When checking out books in public documentation areas, don't forget to complete the sign out sheet located in that area.

String Search:
The 'Search for string:' field can be used to search for specific strings of text in the Title, Author, Location (Room Number), Subject, or Call Number fields. This string search is non-case-sensitive and will return matching results. Furthermore, this string search does not support boolean logic.

  • For example: A string search for 'Stata7' (no spaces included) will produce no results while a search for 'Stata 7' (with a space included) will return many results.

  • Exception: A call number on a book may be formatted differently than in the online catalog. Typically, any spaces appearing in the call number on the book are replaced with dashes in the online calalog.

Subject Search:
The 'Show Documentation in Subject:' field can be used to show all the documentation in a particular subject.
