Geography: Finding Books

Finding Books

Searching Tips

Boolean Logic
Organize your search. Use AND, OR, or NOT to group search terms for the online catalog and databases.

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.
