Q. How do I search for a book in the library catalog?
To search for a particular book, just enter the book title in the basic search box. You may select title from the drop- down box on the right but it is usually not necessary.
To search by topic, simply enter a couple of keywords in the basic search box.
When you get a list of results, use the selections on the left to narrow your search by location, format, subject, author, etc.
You may also use the 'Search begins with' option to search using the first few words of a title. Do not use beginning articles: a, an, the.
When using the author option, type the author's last name first.
