Catalog search tips

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: "economic growth".
  • Use * for truncation (to find variant spellings and endings of a word): wom*n will find woman, women, womyn
  • For more complex search, use AND and OR (note that AND and OR must be in ALL CAPS for this to work correctly in CLIO):
    • 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.
  • Use parentheses ( ) to group terms:  wom*n AND textile* AND (factor* OR mill OR mills)
