Catalogue Search Tips

Combine terms to be more precise using the 'AND' command
e.g. coffee AND import AND Canada

Find synoyms using the 'OR' command
e.g. international OR global

Use single quote marks to match multiple words exactly (**use double quote marks in Summon and in research databases)
e.g. 'business analysts'

Use shortcuts to find words with different spellings:
e.g. correction$ will find correction, corrections, and correctional (but not corrective)

Find the library subject terms for your topic
e.g. if you browse by SUBJECT for the keyword Taser (which is a brand name) you'll see that libraries use the term stun guns instead
