Explanation:

sample catalog results listThe library's catalog, NovaCat, provides an inventory of all the items available at the library.

You can use the catalog to search for specific items by their title or author, or you can search for items on a specific topic using keywords.

From the results list, you can click on an entry to view an item's availability, location, and call number.

If an item is currently checked out by someone else, you can even place a hold on it to be notified when it is available.
