Tips for using QCat

  • Be aware that QCat (the library catalogue) will often give only very basic information about a book- it won't usually include a detailed contents list.
  • Some newer books will have a Review & More link on the catalogue - this will give you some additional information.
  • QCat does not search the contents of e-books - it only searches the information on the catalogue record.  You should link through to the full-text of e-books to see exactly what they contain.
  • Often there is no substitute for going to the relevant shelves in the library and physically browsing the books to check out the index and contents pages.
