Mirlyn - The Library Catalog

Tips for Searching in Mirlyn

Use Mirlyn, the University of Michigan catalog for finding books, DVDs and other materials. 

  • Basic Search lets you enter a few key words to get started. You can also use the drop-down menu to choose specific fields to search; title, author, subject headings, etc.

  • Advanced Search allows you to refine your search even further by choosing a date range, language, format, and a specific library location or collection. 

Combining Search Terms

Make sure you capitalize any connecter words (AND, OR, NOT) when searching or Mirlyn will disregard the words and assume you want the words connected with AND. See the examples below.

Search example:

("older people" OR "population aging") AND Asia
