Search with GLOCAT and make IDS Requests

How to use GLOCAT to search our Library Catalog, and how to use IDS to request items from other libraries.

What is a DOI?

A DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is a unique marker for the electronic version of an article— like a digital fingerprint. When you have a DOI (they all start with 10), you can search for that number through any search engine, or by adding the prefix “” to get directly to the digital location of that article.

Search by DOI

You can search by DOI from the library's home page. Type in the DOI (starting with "10.") into the DOI Lookup search box.


If Geneseo has access to the object, you will be prompted to view the article either by downloading the PDF or by following a link to the article.
