Search Tips

Keyword Searching

A keyword search allows you to search for a word, words or a phrase anywhere in the library catalogue record (such as author name or words appearing in the title).

  • It's always a good idea when searching for information on a topic to use multiple search strategies and to account for variations in language, terminology, spelling, etc.

For example: modernism and (theatre or theater)
 

Starts With or Browse Searching

A Starts With (or Browse) search allows you to browse a list of titles, authors or subject headings that correspond to the information you provide.  This type of search is best used when you are searching for a particular title, author or subject.

Subject searches can be an effective way to find information about an author or topic. 

  • Subject searches use Library of Congress SUBJECT HEADINGS. These are standardized headings assigned to a book to describe what the book is about. A single book may have one or, more likely, several different Subject Headings.
     
  • Subject headings work pretty much the same way tags work on social networking or photo sharing sites: you can click on a subject heading to find other books on the same or similar topic (the same way you can click on a tag to find more photos of kittens).

To search by Subject in the Library Catalogue, click the Starts With button and then select LC Subject from the drop-down menu.

Useful Subject Headings when searching for information about an author and/or his or her works include:

    Name of author (Last name, first name)
    Name of author (Last name, first name) -- Criticism and interpretation.
    Name of author (Last name, first name). Title of a specific work.

For example:

    Miller, Arthur, 1915-2005.
    Miller, Arthur, 1915-2005 -- Criticism and interpretation.
    Miller, Arthur, 1915-2005 Death of a Salesman.
