How to use this library catalogue

 

Quick search

Use this for keyword searching.  Keyword searching means that it will search all the fields i.e. title, author, subject, series, notes and publisher, for that word.  It will not list likely matches.

Title search

This allows you to search any of the search types from the one screen. PLEASE NOTE: It is advisable not to fill out all search criteria.

Authors

Search for your favorite author.

Subjects

Find out what we have on a subject.

Series

Search for a series i.e. Vampire Chronicles.

Publishers

Allows you to search by publisher name e.g. Reed.

 

Once you have clicked on the search type that you wish to use you then type in what you want to search for. Anything written in blue and underlined you may click on to find out more.

 

Tip

You can use truncation in searches. E.g. electro* will search for all words starting with electro, and *electro* will search for all words containing electro. Or if you are not sure of how to spell an authors name you may want to enter just the first part of their name e.g. Ste* King.

 

You can also use Booleans. That is and, or & not. Actually and is assumed, so that when you enter red black the search will result in titles that contain both read and black. If you enter red or black the search will list titles that contain either red or black. Should you enter red not black the search will list titles that contain red but not black.
