Search Tips

  • Place quotation marks around keyword phrases (e.g.,"concrete poetry" or "review of english studies").
  • It is important to click either "View all formats and languages" or "View all editions" to obtain complete information about library holdings. Both links connect to the same page.
  • Capitalize Boolean logic connectors (AND, OR) (e.g., narrative OR plot).
  • Type ti= if you know the exact title (ti=color purple).
  • Type au:, su: or ti: before your keywords to specify author, subject or title words (e.g., au: walker, alice).
  • A title search in DELCAT Discovery identifies words in chapter titles and works of literature published in anthologies, so examine the full descriptions of the items retrieved.

UD items appear at or near the top of the results display.
