Search Tips

When looking for items in the library catalog, try running a few keyword searches! Find a few words that best represent your topic and enter those in the search box. Keep it simple - start with just a word or two and evaluate the results that come up. When keyword searching, you can also limit your search by language, material type, or location in the library on the search results page.
