The Keyword and Advanced Search function on the top left of the homepage have been designed to make it easy for you to seek out information anywhere in the catalog website. The Catalog F.A.Q.’s   also contain links to sections of the e-catalog students most often seek. And, should you need to print a page from the catalog, you will see the “Printer-Friendly Page” icon on the top right side of each webpage next to the Help button.
