MARQCAT is the Marquette Libraries catalog. Search for books on a topic by changing the default "Author" search below to the 'Subject' search or the 'Keyword' search modes. You can also determine if MU Libraries' subscribe to a specific print or electronic journal by entering the title of the journal. However, you cannot use MARQCAT to search for articles within the journals.
RESEARCH TIP: If you don't find your topic in the Subject search, try your terms as Keyword searches instead. A Keyword search will also pick up books that have a chapter on your topic. For example, there is no subject heading for sexual violence. But if you do a keyword search of those terms, you will find many books. Or you can connect concepts, such as the "sexual violence AND african american women." Again, many books come up. If you find a book that is dead on, check its subject headings for more books on that topic
When entering a search in a database, try entering 2 or more keywords that represent the main concepts of your topic, connecting them with the word AND. For example: "birth control AND gender." When you find a relevant article, look at its subject headings and click on those for more articles.
