The electronic library has systematic and alphabetical catalogs. An alphabetical catalog is a catalog in which bibliographic records are grouped in alphabetical order of the authors’ surnames or book titles. The alphabetical catalog is accessed if it is necessary to find out if there is a specific book in the library’s collection. The alphabetical catalog presents papers (term papers, theses, abstracts, books) in alphabetical order, and they do not have a specific classification.

The systematic catalog contains works on a certain classification. A systematic catalog is a catalog in which bibliographic records are arranged by branches of knowledge. Systematic catalog “Electronic resources” reflects only electronic resources (computer-controlled) publications from the library’s collection. Records are arranged by branches of knowledge.

  • The necessary material can be copied by creating a document on the desktop.;
  • Now you can freely edit and print this material

Similarly, the material is searched in the alphabetical catalog.
