    by title.
  • A, An and The at the beginning of the title can

Subject Search
  • Enter the topic you are looking for.
  • Think of other words that might be used for your
    subject and search by those to get better
    results.
  • Not all books are easily searched by subject.
  • Find the general area on the shelf and browse the
    books to find what you want.

Keyword Searches (Any Word)
  • Keyword searches work well when you arent sure
    about the exact title or subject words you need.
  • The more you limit the search, the better your
    results.
  • Very general searches give BIG results and make
    it hard to find what you need.

16
Boolean Searches
  • When you choose the tab for Boolean Search, you
    can do searches using and, or or not to
    narrow down your search results.
  • Boolean searches help you find things that are
    closer to what you need.
