Search Tips

Look for a book or media material:

  • Start off searching the Library Catalog with a keyword search; type in a general word or two that best describes your topic.
  • Browse the results list to see if there is a title that looks relevant. If there are none, try your search again with some more specific terms.
  • If you find a relevant book, click on the title to see the full Library Catalog record. Write down the subject headings (or tags) associated with the book.
  • Continue to browse the results list, and write down any related subject headings for relevant books.

Narrow it down:

  • Take the relavant subject headings you wrote down, and search by selecting "subject" from the drop-down bar next to the Library Catalog search box.
  • Try to mix and match some of the subject headings to find a wide variety of relevant books.


  • If you are having problems finding any relevant results, make a list of synonyms or similar phrases to your topic and try searching each of them.
