CATQuest is the UVM Libraries discovery tool that provides information about and access to a wide variety of research materials from the UVM Libraries and beyond. Search CATQuest to find books, periodicals, pamphlets, maps, and broadsides in the Vermont Research Collection and the Rare Book Collection. CATQuest also includes information about manuscript, photograph and archival collections and provides access to scholarly articles and articles in newspapers and periodicals and items in our digital collections.
You can also search the Classic Catalog, which indexes books, periodicals, pamphlets, maps, broadsides, and manuscript collections in the Vermont Research Collection, the Rare Book Collection, and the University Archives. The classic catalog does not provide access to individual articles.
Finding aids provide information about the manuscripts, photographs, ephemera and reference files in the Vermont Manuscripts, the University Archives, and the St. Johnsbury Archives Collaborative. Finding aids describe a collection and the person or organization that created it and contain a list of the collection’s content. Many of our finding aids are available online, but others are available only in the Special Collections reading room.
Consult our Collections page for additional information about finding different types of materials in Special Collections.
Special Collections librarians will be happy to help you find material in any of our collections. Visit in person, email, or call 656-2138.
