Search Tips

When you search for items in the library catalog, there are some tricks to getting the results you want.

1. When you enter your search terms, our catalog will suggest possible search terms. These suggested terms can help you to narrow down your research area.

2. Once you have performed a search within the catalog, look on the left-hand side for filtering options. Many times you can limit the publication dates, the type of item you're viewing (book, ebook, video, etc.), and you can even narrow down your search interest by subject or language.

3. Consider using your Boolean Operators, such as AND, OR, and NOT to narrow down your search.

While we do have ebooks in the main catalog, you can also search Ebrary or Ebscohost. A search in these databases will look for your search terms not only in the title of an ebook but also within the ebook itself. This is useful when you have a very specific topic that is mentioned in multiple publications but not in the title information. Type in your search terms in the boxes below and click Search.
