Quicksearch: Yale Library's Catalog

Quicksearch contains information about books and e-books, as well as journals, newspapers, magazines, manuscripts, audio-visual material, scores, maps, government documents, databases, and more!

If you're used to using Orbis, Yale Library's legacy catalog -- everything from Orbis is included in Quicksearch! You can search either place.

Note: Beginning around summer 2025, Yale Library will be migrating away from Orbis. If you will still be at Yale in 2025, consider getting to know Quicksearch!

Search Techniques to Find Books

Linked subjects in the catalog are like #hashtags

Catalog records for books include linked subjects, which work similar to #hashtags: when you click on a linked subject, you will return results from the catalog of more books on that same subject.
