NURS 2103: Introduction to Professional Nursing: Find Books

Finding Books

Searching Tips

Boolean Logic
Link search terms with AND, or OR, to produce more relevant results..

Types of Searches (Keyword, title, subject, etc.)

Keyword is like Google—it finds your search term anywhere. Exact Search finds words in order. Subject, Title, Author, etc. searches are more powerful because they search only in those parts of the database.

Subject Headings Use Subject Searches (either Exact or Browse) to find database-specific terms that demonstrate what the work is ABOUT.

Truncation Use the asterisk (*) to search using root words. For “teen*” you get “teens”; “teen”; “teenager”, etc.
