Catalog Search

Tips
  • Note that searching the entire collection requires a separate search of the "full text" of the digitized books, pamphlets, and serials.
  • Use an asterisk as wildcard at the beginning, middle, or end of a word to search partial words.
  • You can use and, or, and not operators.
  • Multiple words without quotes will be searched as if they were combined with the and operator.
  • Search for a phrase by enclosing it in double quotes, e.g. "reading instruction".

Tips
  • Note that searching the entire collection requires a separate search of the Catalog records.
  • Full-Text Search does not include results from Catalog Search.
  • Handwritten materials are excluded from Full-Text Search.
  • The OCR-generated text has not been corrected, so there is no guarantee of 100% retrieval of all pages (page images) containing your search word or phrase.
