Catalog Search

Tips
  • Note that searching the entire collection requires a separate search of the "full text" of the digitized books, newspapers, pamphlets, and serials.
  • Multiple words without quotes will be searched as if combined with the and operator.
  • For a broad search, place an asterisk at before, within, or after the search term.
  • Search for a phrase by enclosing it in double quotes, e.g. "home economics."
