Search Tips for Finding Books

    Keyword - broadest type of search.  Type in the keywords that broadly describe your topic.  For example: juan rulfo el llano en llamas. On the results screen choose the Resource Type Print Books and/or eBooks from the left toolbar. This will eliminate any articles that were found.

    Title - search for a specific book by title. Type in the first few words of the book title in quotations.  For example: "el llano en llamas". On the results screen choose the Resource Type Print Books and/or eBooks from the left toolbar. This will eliminate any book reviews that were found.

    Author - search for books written by a specific author. Type in the last name followed by the first name of the author in quotations.  For example: "juan rulfo". On the results screen choose the Resource Type Print Books and/or eBooks from the left toolbar. This will eliminate any book reviews and articles that were found.

Note down the library name and call number -- you need this information to locate the book.
