Find books by searching our catalog. Sometimes the catalog doesn't always retrieve exactly what you want; it may take a bit of trial & error.
Important quick tips:
- Use the advanced tab
- If your initial search is unfruitful, try searching by Title, Author or Subject. Try using different search terms related to your topic (Example: "Motion Picture" instead of "Film.")
- Try breaking up search terms into separate boxes. (Example: Search for History AND civil rights)
- Omit unnecessary words such as "the, of, or."
- Search for authors by last name followed by first name (Example: "Rowling, J.K.")
