How to search the scanned card catalog?

Catalog cards are sorted alphabetically according to
  • the first author’s name (publications written by one, two or three authors)
  • the title (more than three authors)
  • the name of institution, congress etc. (no authors; publications concerning institution activities, proceedings of conferences etc.)

While searching the catalog you may come cross-reference additional links zob. [see] and zob. też [see also] directing to the main card. In such cases checking the record of a searched item by the author’s name or title is necessary.

The navigation tools facilitating to browse the catalog include:
  • the letter index and the range of catalog cards within the letters
  • the buttons facilitating searching the cards within a particular range of letters

To start the search act as follows:
  • choose the letter that the author’s name or title begins with
  • out of the menu on the left the range containing the searched author’s name or book title
  • using the buttons, e.g. <1 or 1> search the cards until the searched item is found
