A library catalog is a register of all bibliographic items found in a library.
OneSearch is a subscription service that we purchased from ProQuest, it is what we called a discovery tool. It provides a single search box and Google-like interface. Content is harvested from not only library resources, but also databases, repositories, and other subscriptions or open access sources.
Library materials are arranged by collections which have their designated shelf locations in the library. Within each collection, items are arranged by Library of Congress call numbers.
Books and journals in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean are located in the Asian Studies Stacks on the 2nd floor. There is a separated Asian Studies Reference Collection that is located next to the Asian Studies Stacks.
This is understandably confusing, so feel free to ask us for help at the research desk or contact Xiang directly.
