Library Catalog

USC Upstate Library Catalog
Advanced Keyword Search
  • E-Books are accessed through a link in the record of the book. Click on the title, then on the link under "Connect To."
  • When accessing the catalog from off-campus, make sure you log in using the icon at the top right corner of the catalog. This will enable all links, including those to e-books.
  • Use the connectors AND, OR, AND NOT as appropriate to connect search terms.
  • * is used as a truncation symbol in the catalog for up to five characters. It is useful for finding singular and plural forms of a word, variant endings on a particular stem, or for alternate spellings: cat* for both cat and cats; vot* for vote, voters, voting, etc.; col*r for color and colour.
  • ? is a one-character wildcard: wom?n finds both woman and women.

Google Books Search

Bibliographic information on millions of books, including full-text access for many out-of-copyright books. Usefully, it allows full-text searching of books and will display excerpts from books to show context. Use the Find this book in a library link to search the free web version of WorldCat and find nearby libraries that own the book. Otherwise, you can look for the book on PASCAL Delivers or order it through Interlibrary Loan.
