If you need help navigating our catalog, please take a look at the following explanations of various tools you can use to make it easier to find what you are looking for:

Simple Search Tool
The Simple search is for those who don't have strong reading or writing skills. Enter a search term and then click an optional picture icon to perform the search (e.g. Author, Title, Series, or Subject); see Simple Search for more information.

Advanced Search Tool
The Advanced search allows patrons to choose the search type (e.g. All Words, Authors, or Titles) using drop-down menus, enter a search term, and then use Boolean operators to refine your search. Experienced users will typically use the Advanced interface for all of their searches.

Study Program
The Study Program interface is useful for those who want to look for titles belonging to a particular reading group or interest level. Enter a keyword, even if it's only the first few letters, click on the Search button, then select the terms you want from the results list. Click here for more information.

The Explore section of the Researcher window consists of a completely iconic interface that provides shortcuts to popular searches (Most Popular, What's New, Award Winners, etc.) and can be customized by the librarian for quick access to specific library resources. Of the five default icons, Explore is the only one that leads to another set of icons. Click here for more information.
