Catalog search tips

  • If you know exactly what book (journal, video, etc.) you are looking for, you can search by Title, Author, ISBN, etc.
  • To find items about a specific topic, first try a keyword search in All Fields.
    • Use "quotation marks" to search for an exact phrase: "cultural heritage"
    • Use * for truncation (to find variant spellings and endings of a word): wom*n will find woman, women, womyn; activis* will find activism, activist, activists, etc.
    • For more complex search, use AND and OR:
      • AND finds records which have all the search terms you entered.
      • OR finds records which have one of the search terms you entered, as well as records which have more than one of the terms. OR finds MORE.
      • For more help with using AND and OR, check out our guide to boolean logic
    • ​Use parentheses to group terms:  "Mexico City" AND (parks OR gardens)
  • Subject headings: If you find a book that's relevant, look at its subject headings in CLIO and click through to find more related works.
