OCtopus & Catalogue: Books, Media and More

A library catalogue is a complete list of all the materials in a library collection and arranged and presented in a way that helps users find and retrieve those materials.

Find books, ebooks, DVDs, videos and more using OC Library's catalogue or OCtopus.

There are different ways to search for items. For example:

  • by keywords that describe your topic
  • by subject heading (a specific word or phrase from a defined list)
  • by title
  • by author

There are different ways to refine or limit your search results. For example:

  • by campus location
  • by type (book, map, musical recording)
  • by date of publication

Research Strategy

Plan and follow a research strategy - it will save you time and frustration!

Step 1: Define your assignment/project

What do you need to do? What are the most important concepts in your assignment/project?

Step 2: Focus your research

What questions do you want your research to answer? What information do you need to support and develop your ideas?

Step 3: Develop your keywords

What words and phrases describe the areas and concepts you are researching? You will use these words and phrases to search for resources.

Step 4: Identify your resources

Who would collect the information you want and where would that information be published/available?

Start identifying your resources by using OC Library subject and course guides. If you have any questions, just ask!

Good research requires time, planning, patience, and flexibility. This Research, Writing and Citing guide will help you learn more about the research process.

Research strategy adapted from University of B.C.’s David Lam Management Research Library’s Jump-Starting My Research (Undergraduate) guide.
