Accessing the Library Catalog

Library Catalog

First, go to our library home page at

Select the Books & E-Books link and then go to UAH Library Catalog.

You can now search the catalog OR login to access your account information.  Please note that the login box now appears in the upper right corner of the webpage after you select Books-E-Books.  You must enter your 'A' number using all numerals; substitute a zero for the letter 'A' as you enter your student ID number so that you enter 9 digits total.


What to Search in iLink

The major subject heading for books about literary criticism about specific works is "Criticism and interpretation."  So, if you wanted to find books with literary criticism about a particular author and his/her works, you would conduct a keyword search like this: 

toni morrison and criticism and interpretation

This would retrieve all items in iLink with those words in the record.

Also, a useful exercise would be to browse by subject. To do this, click on Browse, and then type in the author name and click the subject button.
