Search Tips

  • Place quotation marks around keyword phrases (e.g.,"technical writing" or "journal of technical writing and communication").
  • 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., plagiarize OR copy).
  • 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).

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