Your Arthur Account
By using the My Library Account feature, you can do the following:
• View items checked out
• Renew items
• View status of items requested from other libraries
• View fines and fees
• Access search preferences, remembered titles, and remembered searches
You can access your library account via the Arthur Catalog by clicking on the link for My Library Account.
You will be taken to a logon screen where you can input your name and University Location (In this case: LU)
The next screen, if your account information is accepted, is the screen that gives you access to all of the above.
Here's a tip. If you want to save your searches, log in to your library account first and then do all your searching.
Another tip. When signing on, the account number must be nine numbers long. So if you only have five numbers in your ID number, try putting zeros in front. For example: 000012345

Unlike the quests of ancient times, finding Arthur, the Inman E. Page Library's Online Public Access Catalog is fairly easy. Arthur is actually a global catalog composed of several libraries, which form a consortium named MOBIUS. Arthur can be found several ways once you open a web browser.
First, there is the method of simply going to the Lincoln University Website (http://www.lincolnu.edu).
From there you can click on the library tab, which will take you the library's home page. On the library's home page you will see several points of information, but the one that is important to this discussion is the Arthur link, which is actually an image link, which looks like this:
There are also several text links that will allow you to get to arthur from the main page.
Searching the Catalog
You can search the catalog using keyword, title, author, journal title, subject, resource name. You can use the simple search, which allows you to just start searching. Or you can use the advanced search, which allows a more indepth selection of choices.
Reading the Records and Interpreting the Results
A record in the online catalog (or database) is just the content as delivered by the database in which the record is kept. Each record will contain some basic information related to the content retrieval or its description or both.
For example, this part of a record provides the title of the item, some publication information, a link to its online location and then a guide to its physical location in the library.
Particularly note the sections labeled: Location, Call #, Note and Status.
Location is the section of the library where the content is housed.
Call # is the call number of the item by which the item is categorized and located on the shelf.
Note is a notation about the item.
Status relates to the availability or non-availability of the item. This is usually the area that includes that all important “Due Date.” A patron may always look up the book to discover the availability or due date of an item.
The next section of the record contains descriptive information, subject information and other information related to the record. One may find useful keywords in the description or summary of a record. The subject information is also useful for seeking related topics. This area usually contains “searchable” documentation – one might search by subject or OCLC number in the catalog.
