Using discoverE to find books:

From the Catalog tab in discoverE  do a simple search:

  • When you get some results, use "Refine My Results" on the left to narrow your search by author, item type, date and more

* Too many search results?

  • Add additional terms to your search
  • Limit your search by item type, exact phrase, and/or author/title/subject using discoverE's drop-down menus
  • Use discoverE's "Refine My Results" feature (in the left column)


* Too few results?

  • Remove some terms from your search
  • Add synonyms using OR [in upper case] with parentheses - for example (women OR woman OR female)
  • Remember to use links in useful titles to locate other materials by the same author or on the same subject. Click on "Details" for individual titles to find subject headings.


* Off-topic results?

You can also do an Advanced Search in discoverE which will allow you to search by title, author, etc as well as limit by format or language.
