Tips for Finding Books

  1. Your first search should be a very general keyword search.
  2. Never use a, an, or the when searching for a title.
  3. Always use the long view to review subject headings.
  4. If a record says "networked resource" it is usually available online.
  5. Always pay attention to the call numbers and note whether the material is shelved in the regular, oversized (+), or double oversized (++) sections.
