How To…

…Search the Catalog

  • Use the Catalog Search bar located at the top of the left-hand Navigation bar.

  • To search a particular section – course, programs, hierarchy items or other content – you can search from the left-hand navigation. Note: Hierarchy items are anything associated with the Departments, Interdisciplinary Programs or the Core Program (those aspects of our College that have “ownership” of courses).

  • To search the entire catalog, click Advanced Search. Check all Search Locations. Enter the keyword or phrase. Click Search. The search will provide you with links to the pages on which the keyword or phrase appears.

  • To find the word on a particular page, press CTRL-F. Type the word that you are seeking into the search bar. Click Next and Previous to advance through the mentions on the page.

 …Print Content

  • To print a page, scroll to the top or bottom of the page and click on the  Print-Friendly Page link. A new window will open, which will contain just the body of the page (no navigation).  

  • Click the  Print this Page link at the top of the page and identify a printer.

  • Use the filter to narrow your search. For example, if you want to see only Business Administration courses, select the Prefix BA or select the Type Business Administration from the drop-down menu. Then click Filter. Of note, if you want to do another search, you will have to remove your selection by finding the word Select… in the drop-down menu.
