Other Catalogs - Harvest: Library Catalog Subsets
The Full Catalog contains all cataloged book, journal, periodical, magazine and newspaper titles, musical scores, maps, government documents, archives, manuscripts and other materials owned by the UC Davis University Library. It does not index articles in journals. Use an electronic database to find journal articles.
The Harvest Library Catalog subsets contain a specific type of material, for example, journal titles or UC Davis Dissertations. These catalog subsets are limited to the format or type of material included. Although all of the material is included in the Full Catalog, it can often be more efficient to search only within the specific catalog subset.
When you are done searching in one of the catalog subsets described below, you will need to switch back to the Full Catalog to search for all types of materials again.
UCD Course Reserves Catalog
The Reserves Catalog is a catalog of materials on reserve for specific courses and includes books, journal articles, and more. It may be searched by title keyword, instructor's name or course number.
Journals & Serials Catalog
You may search the Journals & Serials catalog by journal title, subject, or corporate author to find out if the library has either print or electronic versions of journals, periodicals, serials, annuals, newspapers, or magazines.
Do not search the Journals & Serials catalog to find articles. Use one of the electronic databases to identify articles. Then you may use the Journals & Serials catalog to look up a journal title to see whether the library owns it, where it is located, and what the call number is. If the library has access to an online version of a journal, the catalog record will also include the URL to go to online access.
To find only electronic versions of journals, search in the E-Journals catalog.
The E-Journals catalog can be used to go to electronic versions of journals, periodicals, annuals, newspapers, or magazines. The catalog record will have a URL and a clickable icon to go to the electronic versions. Alternatively, use the Electronic Journals A-Z list to quickly locate an electronic journal title.
Do not search the E-Journals catalog to find articles. Instead, use one of the electronic databases to identify journal article citations.

Harrison Collection (Click On Special Collections Tab)
The Michael and Margaret B. Harrison Western Research Center collection consists of more than 21,000 volumes relating to the history of the Trans-Mississippi West, including rare and fine press books, serials, pamphlets, maps, and other printed items. Subject strengths include Native Americans, cowboys and cattlemen, western military history, Custer and the Battle of the Little Big Horn, western art, transportation, trails, and national parks.
The Harrison Collection may be searched by keywords, title, subject, and author. It may also be searched by "Harrison Subject." Michael Harrison organized his collection under broad subject areas (such as Indians), and his arrangement on the shelves followed these categories. For more information on how to use the Harrison Subjects, please contact Special Collections. Items in the Harrison Collection may also be found by searching the Full Catalog.
To search all of Special Collections, use Advanced Search in the Full Catalog to do an author, title, keyword, or subject search and limit location to "Shields Special Collections."
Eastman Photos Catalog (Click On the Special Collections Tab)
The Eastman Collection is a collection of photographic images housed in the UCD Shields Library Special Collections Department. The photographs were from the studio of Jervie Henry Eastman and capture California historical scenes during the period 1890-1960.
To search all of Special Collections, use Advanced Search in the Full Catalog to do an author, title, keyword, or subject search and limit the location to "Shields Special Collections."
UC Davis Dissertations Catalog (Click On the More Tab)
The UC Davis Dissertations Catalog contains records for UC Davis Ph.D. dissertations and Master's theses. There are also some records for dissertations done at other universities. UC Davis dissertations and Master's theses do not have Library of Congress Subject Headings. They may be searched by author name, title word(s), or by academic department. For example, enter the academic department name in the search box labeled "department," (e.g., English or Electrical Engineering).
To pick up all dissertations as a format, use Advanced Search in the Full Catalog to do an author, title, keyword or subject search and limit by format to "dissertations."
New Items Catalog (Click On the More Tab)
The New Items Catalog contains records for items that have been added within the last 60 days. For journals, only titles that have been added within the last 60 days are included (i.e., you cannot use this catalog to find out if a new issue of a journal has arrived. To do that, you need to find the journal in the Full Catalog and check the holdings records.) The items searched in this catalog change daily as older items are dropped and new items added. All items also appear in the Full Catalog.
This catalog contains items in all formats, including electronic, so a search for everything added within the last 60 days may retrieve a large number of items, especially if we have recently "batch loaded" records for Internet accessible electronic resources.
