Learning to Search OSCAR, the Library Catalog

OSCAR is the library catalog. You need to use it to find out what books we own, in print or electronic format, as well as videos, streaming and not! It is also your gateway to books available through many other libraries.

Sound great, doesn't it?

Unfortunately, OSCAR is, in fact, rather difficult to search topically. If you know the author or the title of the item you want, it is pretty straightforward. Searching for a topic, however, is, in fact rather difficult. The video below takes off, essentially, where the Meet OSCAR tutorial ends. It is dense and probably won't make much sense unless you have spent time searching OSCAR already or have done that tutorial!
