Search by Phrase:
Increase search result relevancy by using quotation marks. For example, “Civil Rights” in quotation marks will find results on “civil rights” and not results that have the terms “civil” and “rights” listed independently.
If you know the title, subject or author name, select the appropriate type of search from the dropdown menu.
Connecting Search Terms:
Use "AND", "OR" or "NOT" to connect search terms. For example, if you want to find books on the Civil Rights movement in urban areas, type "Civil rights" in the first box and Urban in the second. Doing so will improve the relevancy of your search results.
