Finding Items in the Library Catalog

You can find many items available at our library and other libraries in the Ramapo Catskill Library System by searching our online library catalog.

Once the catalog appears you may use any of the several available searches. The default is Quick Keyword search, where you can enter portions of a title, subject keywords, or an author's name.

If you know the exact title or author's name, you should click Basic, select Author or Title from the drop down menu on the next screen that appears, and enter your information.

You can also click Advanced to search for one or more author names or keywords. Advanced can also be used for finding videos/DVDs and items by ISBN.

If you know only part of a title or author's name, click Advanced, select either Author Keyword(s) or Title Keyword(s), enter your information, then click GO.

To filter your search results select an option from the Limit BY drop down list at the top of the screen. Here you may limit your results to Thrall Holdings and do things like limit results to certain criteria, including reading levels and media types (e.g. videos, DVDs).

For help on finding information please visit the Reference Department at the library or call Reference directly at (845)341-5461. If you have e-mail, you can also use our online reference service to speak with our librarians. We will be happy to assist you!
