Searching for Books and Media

Search Tips:

  • Place keywords in quotation marks to search for an exact phrase.
    Example: "south carolina"
  • Boolean operators:
    • and - all terms must be found; narrows a search
      Example: television and violence
    • or - any of the terms may be found; expands a search
      Example: "mass media" or television
    • and not - excludes the terms
      Example: mexico and not "new mexico"
  •  
  • Use an asterisk (*) to search for different variations or spellings of a word.
    Example: teen* - teen, teens, teenage, teenager, teenagers, etc.
