ISSN and ISBN Searching

The ISBN is an International Standard Book Number. It appears as a 10 or 13 digit number. Many materials in our collection can be found by doing a keyword search for the ISBN. Materials published before 1961 may not have an ISBN. The ISSN is an International Standard Serial Number. It appears as two groups of four digits separated by a hyphen. Almost every periodical, law review, and journal in our catalog can be found by doing a keyword search for the ISSN.

Getting Started

All of the print and electronic materials owned by the Chickasaw Nation Law Library at Oklahoma City University School of Law are listed in the online Catalog

Reading Catalog Records

Each electronic and print item owned by the Law Library will have a record in the Catalog. Each record contains information about the title, author, subject, publisher, shelving location, and call number. The record may also include the item's table of contents and information about the item's physical characteristics like size and number of pages.


The title will be listed twice. Once at the very top of the page in large, bold print and then again as a link. Use the link to find other items in the catalog with the same title: for example, previous editions of a book.


The author's name will also be a link. Use this link to find other titles by the same author.

Online Links

Electronic resources will be linked below the author and title information. Some materials will only be available to law students and faculty and will require a login. For more information about available databases, please visit the Chickasaw Nation Law Library Databases page.


Holdings Information

The gray box labeled Holdings Information will tell you the physical location of an item and whether the item is checked out or on the shelf. Some items will have multiple locations. This means we have more than one copy of the item.

You will also see a Map It! button. Click on this button to see where in the library the item is shelved.

You can learn more about finding books on the shelf on the Law Library Services and Policies Guide.

Periodicals will have additional holdings information.

The most recent issues received by the library will be listed followed by the volumes owned by the library. Open ended dates indicate that we are still receiving new issues of the title.


Table of Contents

For more details about the content of an item, scroll down to view chapter titles and subtitles in the table of contents.

Additional Options

Clicking on the WebVoyage MARC View link will take you to a different view of the record. This is called the MARC record. It is a machine readable version of the bibliographic record. Some fields may be relevant to your citation needs. For example, field 260 shows the publication information:
