Finding Books, Journals, and Articles
- TOPCAT (WKU Libraries online catalog)
The catalog lists books, journals, CDs and DVDs; searchable by title, author, subject or keyword. It also lists titles of magazines and journals owned by the library, but does not provide access to articles. TOPCAT shows the location of each item, gives the call number, and indicates whether it is available. TOPCAT has a mapping feature for most items which shows where they are located within the main library.
