Searching Tips for New Catalog


Student in Library

Please note these important searching differences in your new library catalog:

  • All terms, including articles (a, an, the), are searched, e.g., a search for "the journal of nutrition" gives a different number of results than a search for "journal of nutrition."

  • Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) are not used as operators in the new catalog. They are searched just like any other term.

  • When performing an author search, you no longer need to search last name first, e.g., your results will be the same whether using "William Shakespeare" or "Shakespeare, William."
