Keyword Searching Tips

 

To find books on a particular subject, use a keyword search on the library catalogue. Keyword searching often retrieves a large number of results. You might need to narrow your search by adding further keywords.

 

 When searching by keyword use distinctive words that describe the information you are looking for.

Use quotation marks to search for phrases
If you retrieve too many results, try modifying your search by adding more terms

Use the term 'OR' to combine synonyms or alternative terms

 

As you search, use the information contained in the catalogue fields to determine if something is of interest.

The Author, Call Number, and Subject fields are hyperlinked to enable you to move quickly around the catalogue to look for related information.
