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

Locating Books

Once you have found a book in the catalogue, you need to know the following information to locate it:

Campus: if a book is not at your campus, you can request a transfer .

Location: where is the book in the library - circulating collection, reserves, reference.

Call Number: LB 2369 .R575 2007 (you will find this number on the spine of the book).
