Search Tips

Use the following tips to improve your searches.

Search Terms: Create a list of key concepts and terms related to your subject. Synonyms of key terms are useful too. Look for these terms in the book's Table of Contents and in the Index.

Think Broad: If you cannot find a book exactly matching your topic, look for a book where your topic might be addressed. 

Example: Search for a book on the American Revolution if your topic is the Boston Tea Party.

Ask for Help: Ask a librarian for help. Seriously, ask us - we want to help you!
