Smart Searching Tips

Try different key words in your searches:

  • People, types or names (Nuns, Isabella of Castile)
  • Places (Europe, Argentina)
  • Time periods or events (Middle Ages, 20th century)
  • Things
  • Categories

Add to your list by looking for:

  • Subject terms in the catalog and databases.
  • related terms (queen - royalty)
  • synonyms (medieval - middle ages)

No results? Search more broadly: 

Try your search using fewer terms, or change to broader terms: for example, use the term artist (broad), instead of just painter (narrow).

Too many results? Narrow down by adding something:

Try combining  search words, using "and" in between: nuns and education

Search Tools

Combine your terms using "AND":

women and marriage and property


Use the *  (asterisk) wildcard, to search several terms at once.

educ* = educated, education, educator, etc.

Use quotation marks to enclose a phrase:

"voting rights"
