General Search Notes

The main starting point for research at Rutgers University Libraries is

The search box on that page will search all of our cataloged books, and the contents of many, perhaps most, but not all of our databases.

When searching for Joan of Arc it is best to put the words in quotation marks to search it as a phrase -- "Joan of Arc"

You can use the left hand tool bar to limit by type of resource or by general subject. You can also use the advanced search option to search solely by subject or by author.

Remember that Joan is the English version of her name. You might also want to search for "Jeanne d'Arc" or "Maid of Orleans" or Pucelle.

If the title of a work is in another language (say, French), the book or article is most likely in that language as well.
