Search Tips to Improve Your Results
Putting phrases in quotes (e.g. "business ethics") can yield more relevant results
To search a word and its various endings use an asterisk ( * for 1-5 characters, ** for unlimited number of characters)
Example: huck* retrieves huck, huckster, etc.; huck** retrieves those plus huckleberry, etc.
To search for multiple words that are not a phrase use and: start and business retrieves items with both words.
Group synonyms in parentheses joined with OR: (atomic or nuclear) power
Use a: for author, t: for title, s: for subject, and o: for other keywords
Example: a:twain and t:huck** (note no space after colon) would retrieve Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
To remove ebooks from search results put and not electronic resource after search term(s).
