A Trick to Find Popular Books at RUL: Advanced Search

TIP: Frustrated by the many results? Use the ADVANCED SEARCH function in QuickSearch and change the pull down menu to TITLE and AUTHOR. Add "Harry Potter" and "Rowling" in the respective boxes. Then, in the left column, under RESOURCE TYPES, check the BOOKS box. Once you found a book, you may want to scroll down to the bottom and browse other titles.
