Metadata and Cataloging Unit: How to use the Catalog

The Metadata and Catalog Unit provides access to all library materials for students, faculty, and staff of SVSU. The unit codes bibliographic information of every item to allow the patrons the easiest experience in finding their desired resources.

What is all this?

A library catalog is a listing of all the library's resources. There isn't one list of total items that the library has access to because it would be very, very long! It's the job of the Metadata and Cataloging Unit to make this listing be as helpful and useful as possible. 

Our library catalog can be searched from our website: Just type your search work in the box underneath the words "Search with Zahnow" and off you go!
