How do I find books?
Find books by searching our catalog. Note: sometimes the catalog doesn't retrieve exactly what you want; it may take a bit of trial & error.
Use the Search Box Filter to limit your results to books:
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.")
