CLSI On-Line Public Catalog Keyboard Terminal Manual: Training Manual.
California State Univ., Chico.
This training manual developed by the Public Access Subcommittee of the Reference Department of Meriam Library (California State University, Chico) provides instructions for using the library's online public catalog by means of a keyboard terminal. An introduction describes the Boolean searching capability of the online catalog and gives examples of Boolean searches. Keyboard terminal search procedures and methods of correcting keyboard errors are delineated, prior to a listing of keyboard symbols used in searching and a description of the use of the truncation symbol. Directions for author, title, subject, call number, special qualifier, and year of publication searches are given with examples provided for each. Three appendices comprise: (1) a list of codes for the most common qualifiers, which are those used to locate books in a particular language, or a particular type of material; (2) an illustration of the terminal keyboard with an explanation of its special function keys; and (3) a list of initial articles to be dropped when searching by title.
