Search Tips

Quick Search records include a brief description and location information for books, journals, and other items owned by the Library. NOTE: You will also find records in Quick Search for individual articles. We recommend you choose a relevant article index to search for journal articles, rather than using Quick Search.

SEARCH TIPS

  1. You may use Boolean operators AND, OR or NOT to link or exclude concepts. Note: AND, OR and NOT must be capitalized!
  2. If you are searching for books, use Tweak my results on the right of your search results page and choose Books under Format Type.  Alternatively, use Quick Search's Advanced Search and choose Books & more with the Material Type drop-down menu.   (Remember you will need to get the call number of your book to find it in the Library.)  
  3. To find ebooks, follow tip 2 above and then use Tweak my results to select Full Text Online under Availability. Use your ebook's Online access link to open and read the book!
