Finding Books

Browsing for books on the shelves

Browsing for books on the shelves remains a useful option for finding books.

In the UTLibraries catalogue, you can browse  shelves remotely.  To do this:

  • first find a title of interest in the catalogue
  • with your mouse, hover over the call number
  • a tool tip will appear ("Browse the shelf at this call number")
  • click the call number
  • result: the whole collection, all libraries, both print and electronic titles, will appear
  • note the option at the top of the page to "select specific library"

Students of the Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health may find the section RA (Public Aspects of Medicine) of particular value, as this includes the section on Indigenous Public Health.

Creating Alerts for New Titles

You can subscribe to new titles via an RSS feed:

  • Do a search.
  • Look for the the orange RSS icon at the top of the results list of titles and click.
  • Look for the option to "subscribe"
  • Paste the subsequent information into your RSS reader.

These are generic instructions; there will be slight variations with different browsers and readers. Also, you must first set up your 'feed reader'.
