To Narrow Your Search
- Combine your terms with AND and NOT.
||ADHD and children
||ADHD not children
- Use "quotation marks" when you want your search terms to be next to each other.
Example: Enter "image of God" to find all items with these terms in this order.
- Use the pull-down menu to limit by a specific material.
Example: Selecting Video/DVD will only return results from the Video and DVD collection.
- Use Advanced Search to limit by language or date.
To Broaden Your Search
- Combine your terms with OR.
Example: ADHD or hyperactivity
- Use a question mark (?) symbol to search for variations on a word.
Example: hyperact? (for hyperactivity, hyperactive, hyperactiveness, etc.)
- Use a broader concept
Example: instead of "ADHD", use "learning disabilities"
