Catalog Search Tips


Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk ('*') in place of other characters. The '*' wildcard may also be embedded in a search string. You may use '?' to replace a single character anywhere within a word.
Examples : environment* polic*, wom?n

Boolean Operators

Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words.
Example : stocks and bonds
Example : (alaska or canada) and (adventure and not vacation)

Field Limits

A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).


Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.


Finding Books, Videos, Study Aids & More

For the most efficient searching in CLIC member libraries, use CLICnet Advanced Search to search by subject, author, title, or keyword.   You may also specify location, material type, and date ranges. See how in the Advanced-Search Video Tutorial. Use the Request feature to have items from other CLIC libraries delivered to our library fast and free. 


Beyond CLIC, explore other local libraries or use the world’s largest library catalog to find items deliverable through ILL.
