Search Tips

TIME SAVERS: Use the *  (asterisk) to truncate your search terms, to search several terms at once.
                           Example:  femin* = "feminine"+ "feminist"+ feminism" + feminists", etc.

·         Look in Advanced Search to limit by language or material type.

Finding nothing? – try changing your search terms. Use:
  • broader terms
  • related terms
  • synonyms

Try a different database: each contains different sources. Ask the librarian if you'd like some help to find the right search terms.

·         Note that museums and galleries can have their own subject headings.
