When searching for books, here are a few strategies to start with:

  1. If you have the title of the book you want, do a Title (start of) search to find the call number
  2. If you are not sure of where to start, do a KEYWORD search for relevant terms or phrases (put the phrases in "quotation marks").
  3. Use ? to truncate a word, e.g., american? will retrieve american and americans.
  4. Do a subject heading search in a catalog.
  5. If you find a useful title, click on the Subject(s): to get a list of subject headings that will lead to other books on the same topic
  6. If you already have a relevant book or article in hand, use its bibliography to find other sources.
