UVM Libraries’ CATQuest: Your Print and Electronic Resources Discovery Tool

The library catalog CATQuest makes it easy to find resources while Dana’s book collection is off-site. Whether you are looking for a print book, a chapter from a book, an e-book, or a journal article, CATQuest is the first step to getting what you need.catquest-screenshot

For books and journals that are stored off-site, we will scan and send copies of articles and book chapters for you. If you need the entire book, request it through CATQuest and pick it up at the library. Look for the “Request from Annex” button in CATQuest. Over 6,000 print books were checked out from Dana in 2015-2016.

There are over 2,000 electronic books in medical, nursing, and heath professional topics in the CATQuest database. UVM students, staff, and faculty, and UVM Medical Center employees can access the online collections from anywhere, anytime.

Even though there are no book shelves in the library, you can still browse! CATQuest has a special feature that allows you to browse electronically. When searching the Library Catalog in CATQuest, click on the ‘Virtual Browse’ tab to see other titles in the same call number range.

So whatever you are looking for, start with CATQuest. For additional help, please contact the Main Desk by phone at 656-2200 or in person.
