Catalogs & Search Tips



Identify Keywords:  Before searching the Library Catalog or other databases, take a few minutes to write down all the words that describe your topic.  Use these words in keyword searches. For more help with search strategies, follow the links immediately below.

    Follow the Bibliographic Trail:  An effective method for gathering reliable information is to follow the citations or references from one source to another.  Just as internet links take you to other pages or sources recommended by a site's webmaster, the author of a book or article provides a series of notes or references in a bibliography. These references typically lead to other useful sources on the topic. 

    Can't Find Books on Your Topic?  Some content on a topic can be hidden in small chunks within general works.  For example, there may be a few pages or paragraphs on the rusalki in W. F. Ryan's book Bathhouse At Midnight: An Historical Survey of Magic and Divination in Russia.

    Still Can't Find Books Your Topic?  Use Worldcat to search the library cataolgs of other universities; then request to borrow the books through our Interlibrary Loan service.
