Catalog Search (w/ Tips and Tricks)

Use the library's catalog to search for office information systems materials.

Tips to keep in mind when searching:

1) Searching for "office information systems" under the Key Word or Subject criteria will not always give you the best results.

2) Instead, if you are searching for office information systems materials available in our library's collection, then use one or more of the of the following Subject Headings:

  • Business presentations
  • Business writing
  • Customer relations
  • Electronic spreadsheets
  • English language -- Business English
  • Microsoft Access
  • Microsoft Excel (Computer file)
  • Microsoft Office
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (Computer file)
  • Organizational behavior
  • Presentation graphics software
  • Time management

These help narrow the focus of the search and can be helpful if you have a specific topic or genre you're interested in exploring. If you want to know all of the Subject Headings for a particular item in our catalog, then click the Catalog Record tab in the item's record. You can click on one of the Subject Headings and it will bring up a list of all the other items in the library that have the same Subject Heading.

Important Note: Keep in mind that some of these subject searches will return mostly (if not all) ebooks and online resources. If you are only interested in book results, then select BOOK under the "Format" option on the Advanced Search page. This will get rid of all the ebook and online resource results and only provide you a list of books under the selected subject.
