Tips for seaching the catalog:

  • USE simple words, and put exact phrases in quotes:  "landscape photography"
  • COMBINE multiple topics in one search result by using "AND":  surrealism AND photography
  • "*" truncates words with multiple endings (photo, photography, photography, photographic...):  photo*
  • AVOID typing in long phrases. (See what happens when you type in "How can I improve my printing tecniques?")
  • When you find a useful book, check its catalog record for SUBJECT HEADINGS which will link you to other books on the same topic.  Or, try using the subject headings listed on the left-side margin of this page.
