What is OPAC


An online public access catalog (OPAC or simply library catalog) is an online database of materials held by our libraries. Users search a library catalog to locate books and other material available at our library. In simple language it is an electronic version of the card catalogue. OPAC is the gateway to library's collection.

 

How can I search through OPAC?


Basic Procedures:

Access the Online Public Access Catalog.

 

 

 

 

Search Tips:

  1. Finalize topic, check to see what is available first.
  2. Check the Circulation Section to see if material is available.
  3. Think like a thesaurus! Try “Child rearing” instead of “Child raising”.
  4. If you are unable to find a category in a keyword search, try just using one word. The more words you put into a search, the more limited it is.

Staff Assistance:

The Library Staff are available to assist patrons on basic computer procedures in using the OPAC and finding library materials.
