Search Tips


  • Synonyms:   If you’re not finding anything with your chosen keywords, try searching synonyms (example: math for mathematics, automation for mechanization.
  • Subject Terms:   Take a look at the Subject terms in the book's catalog record (see above). By clicking on a Subject term, the Library Catalog searches for other books that have the same Subject term.
  • Books in the library are organized by subject so when you find a book on the shelf, feel free to browse the area to find similar books.
  • Standard Subject Headings:   World War 1914-1918 is the standard subject heading for World War I, and can be used to search most library catalogs and databases. It is still useful to search for variants, such as World War I, First World War, and Great War.
  • Use quotation marks ("  ") to specifically search a phrase.  This helps to further limit your searches; for example, if you type in the words air pollution, the computer will look for any result with the word air and any with the word pollution, but if you search "air pollution" the computer will more likely find that specific combination of words together.
