Books in OneSearch

When you're in the stacks, look at the call number ranges on the end of the shelves to locate your book. The LC classification system is alpha-numeric, so look for the letters first, then the numbers. 

How to search

How To Search

AND, OR, & NOT (also known as "Boolean operators") help you combine search words, to find what you are looking for. Watch this video to find out how it works:

Smart Searching Tips

Smart Searching Tips

Create a list of key words, and try different key words in your searches:

Who, what, where, when....topics, names and places are all good key words, so are titles, events or historical periods, genres/styles/other categories, expert terms.
Add to your list by looking for:

  • Subject terms in OneSearch and other databases.
  • synonyms (woman - female)

No results? Search more broadly: 

Try your search using fewer terms, or change to broader terms: for example, use the term comedy (broader), instead of just standup (narrower).

Too many results? Narrow down by adding something:

Try combining  search words, using "and" in between: "historical fiction" and women

Search Tools

Combine your terms using "AND":

women and literature and "eighteenth century"

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

child* = child, child's, children

Use quotation marks to enclose a phrase:

"little women"
