Tips for Using the WTCC Library Catalog

Use the library’s online catalog to find circulating and reference materials including books and audiovisual resources. Our catalog uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification system and subject headings. LC assigns call numbers (opens in new window) (letters and numerals) according to the book’s primary subject. Many call numbers of automotive materials will begin with T or TL.

Some quick catalog search tips:

  • To limit your search to just the Howell Library, once you are already in the online catalog, select Wake for library (near the bottom of the dropdown list). To search all Wake Tech Libraries, select Wake Libraries (near the top).
  • Truncate with “$” (for example, auto$ will bring up automobile, automotive, automakers, etc.)
  • Put phrases in quotes " ":
    • "automotive technology" or 
    • "car parts" or 
    • "vehicle maintenance"
  • Use Power Search to limit by material type (e.g., DVD)
  • Click on “Catalog Record” and use the subject term links near the bottom to find additional materials.
  • Click on URL to see online content (usually tables of contents or publisher description, but sometimes full electronic resources)

More tips are available via HELP within the catalog.
