Tests & Measures: Library Catalogs

General Information

Via the Internet, search the electronic catalogs of libraries worldwide, small and large--including those of major research institutions and national libraries--at no charge. The Pius Library Web site provides links to Other Libraries (slulink.slu.edu/resourcesfor/othlibs.html). Furthermore, the WorldCat database, updated daily, may be used to search all types of library materials (except individual journal articles) dating from 1200 and cataloged by libraries that contribute their records to OCLC, the U.S. national database. Remote access to WorldCat is subject to the same restrictions as other commercial databases.

The SLU Libraries Catalog (libcat.slu.edu/) consists of the holdings of the Saint Louis University Libraries. It is a component of MOBIUS, a consortium of over fifty academic libraries in Missouri with its own shared catalog. To look for a book, begin the search in the SLU Libraries Catalog. If the book is owned by Pius and currently available, it should be at the shelf location identified by its call number. If the book is unavailable at Pius but can be found at another SLU library, use the Libraries Catalog's Request feature to borrow it from that other SLU Library (you can also go and check it out yourself from these libraries). If the book is unavailable from a SLU Library, then use the Search MOBIUS feature to search the MOBIUS Catalog. Finally, if the book is unavailable from both the SLU Libraries and MOBIUS, place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request for it through the ILLIAD system (libraries.slu.edu/node/89). All requests for journal articles should be placed through ILL.

Consult the SLU Libraries Catalog for additional resources about tests and measures in general, the issues of reliability and validity, test construction, test administration, and information about other instruments.
