Advanced Search Tips

  • Think of 1-3 key words that describe your topic and use those as your search terms.
  • When searching for names or multi-word phrases, use quotes around your terms. This tells the catalog that you want to find books with those words together as a phrase.
    • For example: "Barack Obama" or "international relations"
  • Use the "Subjects" links found in each book record to find related books.
  • If you aren't finding anything useful, try thinking of alternate terms for your search terms. How else might people describe your topic?
    • For example: If your topic is "international relations" you could also try searching for "international cooperation" or "alliances" or even "diplomacy" or "globalization"
