HamCAT

HamCAT is Bush Library's catalog and discovery tool. Hamline and HamCAT are part of the MnPALS library consortium.

Use HamCAT to search for books, DVDs and streaming videos, and journals available at Hamline University and/or the other MnPALS Partner Libraries. You can use the "request" feature in HamCAT to get materials from other MnPALS Partner Libraries delivered to Bush Library for pick-up.

- Search by keyword or Library of Congress (LC) subject headings (in the browse section) when you want to search by topic

- Search by title or author if you are searching for a known item (e.g., you are looking for a specific author or book)
