Introduction to the Catalog

This week we will be introducing the Catalog and how to use it to find  books in the library.  The Call # (or letters) tells us which section the book is located ( E=Easy Picture, F= Fiction Chapter, # = Nonfiction )  and the first 3 letters of the author’s last name .  We will be looking at the catalog and talking about searching by the title of the book or by the topic or subject (what the book is about) to find the Call #, as well as looking to see if the book is available in the library .   The story we read  is Hoop Genius: how a desperate teacher and a rowdy gym class invented basketball by John Coy, which can be found by searching the catalog using the Visual Search for Sports –  Basketball.
