ECON 110: Introduction to Macroeconomics (Dalgaard)

For Professor Bruce Dalgaard - Winter 2020

Getting to the Catalog

The first search option from the library home page is to "search books, scores, articles, audio/video, reserves"  in Catalyst, which simultaneously searches the local catalog and an incredibly large database of scholarly articles and other resources.

This is a great option for research, but for this assignment, you'll be better served by searching the local catalog on its own and the specialized databases separately.

Tips for Searching Catalyst

  • Use concepts not natural language
  • Separate concepts with AND, separate synonyms with OR
  • Start simple then adapt (facets help narrow search results)
  • Enclose phrases in quotes: "economic history" "french revolution"
  • When you have too many results, look for subject headings to focus and narrow your results
