Purpose: Like most library catalogs, our Carroll Library Catalog helps you find available materials in the collection. Our catalog can be searched by author, title, subject, and more.
The Carroll Library Catalog covers both electronic resources and selected print materials. Titles from Questia, Books.Logos.com, GoogleBook Libraries, Cambridge Histories Online, Oxford Reference, our handpicked selection of Online Resources Revisited, as well as selected items from our print catalog, can all be searched through the BHCTI Catalog. URLs are provided for electronic resources.

Researching our Carroll Library CatalogEdit
Go deeper by refining search strategies in Carroll Library Catalog; like a "rerun" on TV, "research" means "look again."
Try these 5 strategies:
Strategy 1: What are you looking for?
In our Carroll Library Catalog, different resources look for different types of information. Separating and combining the right resources will help you target your searching. For instance, review the separate wiki pages for the various components that contribute to BHCTI Library Catalog: Questia, Books.Logos.com, GoogleBook Libraries, Cambridge Histories Online, Oxford Reference, our Online Resources Revisited, and our page about our Print Collection
Strategy 2: Do you need a one-two punch?
Do the same search with the "Title" Search box selected; then repeat with the "Subject" Search box selected. Useful results may be available in one search that the other omits.
Strategy 3: What terms describe what you're searching for?
Keep a list of search terms you'v used, and of ones you find while searching. Both "abominable snowman" and "yeti" describe the same thing, but some citations may use both terms, and some only one- or the other! Make separate searches with alternative terms; mix it up to see if you've found all there is to find.
Strategy 4: What do I do with these citations?
Please send comments or questions to me Even a citation you find that isn't in full text (i.e., readable on screen) may be obtainable. I can help you determine your options and let you decide when and how to pursue them. I say a bit more about this on my official personal note page.
