Keyword Searching:

The easiest way to start searching for materials in the catalog is to do a keyword search.

Combine keywords with appropriate connectors (and, or):

AND is used between keywords to indicate that both terms must be present; AND is used to narrow a search.

OR is used between keywords to indicate that either term must be present; OR is used to broaden a search by providing synonyms or other terminology for a keyword.

Search for alternate endings by truncating with a double asterisk (**):

  • ** is used for open-ended truncation
    Example: globaliz** will retrieve:
  • globalize*
  • globalized
  • globalization
  • ? is used to replace a single character anywhere within a word.
    Example: wom?n will retrieve:
  • woman
  • women
  • womyn
  • Examine the records for other subject headings or terminology that would lead you to other relevant items in the catalog.
