UNISTAR (Use to find books) 

Search UNISTAR
UNISTAR Guide


Use UNISTAR, the Rod Library's online catalog, to identify and locate BOOKS and other resources about tourism owned by the Rod Library. UNISTAR may be found under the Books & More tab on the Rod Library home page.  Rod Library uses the Library of Congress Subject Headings which group items by subject. Therefore, if you find one book on your topic there will be other books on the same topic nearby on the shelves. You will also want to use UNISTAR to determine if the UNI Rod Library has access to a specific journal either in print or electronically. For articles that you found were not full text in the database you were searching, do a "Title" search (Title of the journal/magazine) in UNISTAR to determine if the Rod Library has full text access to the article. Remember UNISTAR does not go down to the article level but you can determine if the Rod Library subscribes to the journal and were it is located.
