Using the Library’s Online Catalog

Find the books you want!

ways to search
Ways to Search
  • Author’s Name
  • Book Titles
  • Subject
  • Series
  • Keywords (Any Word)
author search
Author Search
  • Type in the author’s last name.
  • If there are other authors with the same last name, you will need to select the one you want.
  • Spelling counts!
title search
Title Search
  • If you know an exact book title, you can search by title.
  • A, An and The at the beginning of the title can be omitted (left out).
  • If your title does not match the ones in the catalog, you will not get matches even if the library has the book.
series search
Series Search
  • To find out how many of your favorite “series books” your library has, search by the series title.
  • If you don’t have the series title correct, you may not get all the results.
subject search
Subject Search
  • Enter the topic you are looking for.
  • Think of other words that might be used for your subject and search by those to get better results.
  • Not all books are easily searched by subject.
  • Find the general area on the shelf and browse the books to find what you want.
keyword searches any word
Keyword Searches(Any Word)
  • Keyword searches work well when you aren’t sure about the exact title or subject words you need.
  • The more you limit the search, the better your results.
  • Very general searches give BIG results and make it hard to find what you need.
boolean searches
Boolean Searches
  • When you choose the tab for Boolean Search, you can do searches using “and”, “or” or “not” to narrow down your search results.
  • Boolean searches help you find things that are closer to what you need.
