Click here for help in finding books using the catalog.

to:

You can search for books in a number of ways:

Keyword searches: “science fiction”
look for your keywords anywhere in the catalog description of a book (usually this search is the broadest as it will pick up even minor mentions of your topic). Put quotes around phrases for more accurate results. Combine keywords with AND to narrow your search. Combine keywords with OR to broaden your search.

Subject searches: Fairy Tales
find any book on a certain subject BUT “subjects” are defined by the Library of Congress and may not be the words you think they should be. (So it’s Mythology, Greek not Greek Mythology).

Title search: Myths
finds any book with that word in the title. (A quick but not foolproof way to find relevant books on your keyword/topic).

Think about the ways you could describe your topic and try searching by those keywords in the library catalog. Use reference sources to come up with ideas.\\\
