Search Tips

  • Place quotation marks around keyword phrases (e.g.,"concrete poetry" or "critical survey of drama").
  • 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.
  • Type su: before your keyword to specify the type of search (e.g., su: 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.
