ENGLISH 190: Early America/ Native America

OskiCat

OskiCat is the online catalog for many of the campus libraries (but not all).  Oski will reveal which books and periodicals we have along with what's in our film and map collections.  It does not contain indivisual periodical articles; to find them, you must use indexes. 

A productive way to begin using Oski is by doing a key word search.  For instance, try this search:

indian* captivit* narrative*

At 2:54 on February 21, 2013, this search produced 645 records.  Using the box that, by default, says Entire Collection, you may sort the results or limit to specific formats or library locations.  You may also sort by date or title.  Let's take a look at a record:
