Search tips

  • Crash course in Boolean searching: databases and scholarly journals

    • “”

    • ()

    • AND

    • OR

    • *

  • Be flexible with your terms – if one doesn’t work, a variation might (e.g. “woman” vs “women” – which can also be searched as wom*n)

  • The best way to get really good at searching is to practice!

  • Boolean terms will work with most search engines, including Google

Inter library loan

  • If you cannot find what you are looking for at NNMC, then we can request items from other libraries

    • This requires advanced planning – it can take 2 weeks to get an item in, depending on where the item is located

    • Ask the person at the desk for a request form

  • LIBROS reciprocal agreements:

    • You can borrow from other libraries in the LIBROS consortium, but you will need a “permission slip” from us that indicates you are in good standing with NNMC, and you are subject to the other libraries’ lending rules and fines.
