How Do I...
...find a book?
To find a book look in the Library Catalog.
When you bring up the Library Catalog, it is automatically set to do a WORDS anywhere search.
"WORDS anywhere" looks for words found anywhere within a title; within the subject headings; within the list of author names; etc.
WORDS anywhere:: "college students" :
However, if you are looking for a specific title, or a specific author's name, or a specific subject heading within the Library Catalog, you will usually want to use the pull-down menu to change your search type from "WORDS anywhere" to "TITLE begins with," or "AUTHOR (last name first)," or "SUBJECT begins with."
A "begins with" search looks for your search terms as a phrase beginning with the first word entered in an alphabetical list of authors, titles, subjects or other headings.
So if you are looking for a book entitled Not Quite Burned Out But Crispy Around the Edges, just
You will then be presented with a list of titles; the title closest to the phrase that you entered should be toward the top of the list.
