Q1.

How do I find a book/item that I want?

You can find an item/book using the Taylor’s Catalogue which is available at the respective campus. The catalogue contains records of books, print and e-journals, e-books, dissertations, past year exam papers, music, serials, visual materials and restricted-access research papers.

Once you have located the item, note down the call numbers of the titles. You can locate the items using the call number.  Books on the shelf are arranged according to the call number, starting numerically, then alphabetically. (e.g. 610 ARM, 610 BAC, 612 AMI, 612 BEI)

Q2.

How do I find journals or magazine titles?
The Taylor’s Catalogue includes records of all journals and magazine titles subscribed by the Taylor’s Libraries in both print and electronic formats. (Please note that the Catalogue does not include information on the articles within these journals or magazines).

To find a journal in the Catalogue, use one of the following methods:

  • Go to the Taylor’s Catalogue page, then go to the ‘Refine your search’ section on your left and scroll down to the ‘Format’ option. Click on the ‘Serial’ for a list of all journals and magazine titles available in print and in electronic format.
  • Use the Heading Search and enter the full name of the journal title (remember to omit any initial articles: a, an, the); OR
  • Use the Advanced Search and enter the ISSN of the journal; also, select “ISSN” option. The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) of a journal is often given in the bibliographic citation of an article.

Q3.

How do I find Audio Visual Materials?
In the Taylor’s Catalogue, set the Search Filters to “video recording” for Audio Visual resources, and key in the title, e.g. Forrest Gump.

Alternatively use the following keywords in your Quick Search:

Videos, movies, VCDs, DVDs: use “videorecording”, e.g. Malaysia videorecording;
CD ROMs: use “electronic resource”
Audio recordings, cassettes, audio CDs: use “sound recording”.

Please approach the Library staff at the Lending Services Desk at Level 2 or the Information Desk at TSL Library and TCS Library with the identified title & call number. The staff at the desk will retrieve the audio visual materials from the mobile shelves for you. Borrowing of the audio visual materials is only strictly done via these desks.
