Search the Library Catalogue for books by entering keywords that describe what you are looking for.
Combine terms to be more precise using the 'AND' command
e.g. clothing AND smart materials AND Canada
Find synoyms using the 'OR' command
e.g. international OR global
Use single quote marks to match multiple words exactly
e.g. 'protective clothing' (Note: Summon using double quotes)
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
