Learn how to use our library catalogue for title searching, title renewal, title holding, browsing history, and password changing. 

Title Searching

Users can use different searching functions to retrieve title records.

a. Click the method you want for searching information (e.g. Title Keyword)

(For example, enter “6” and you will retrieve records of items that start with a Chinese character of 6 strokes, such as 交, 伊etc.). The system, however, cannot support characters with more than 25 strokes.
