In the library catalog, you can search for books in multiple ways, including using a keyword, an author, a subject, and a title. All of these will produce different results in a library’s catalog.
A keyword search will give you results from any material in the catalog that mentions the word or phrase you are searching. So if you search medieval history, you may get results with that phrase in the title, series, table of contents, summary, etc. This means it searches very broadly and you get lots of results (that may or may not be relevant)
If you have found a book you want to use, you might also want to look at its call number. Books on the same subject will have a similar number so that they can be put on the shelf next to each other.
Let's say that you want to look for ebooks in our catalog. After performing a search, click on the Modify Search button, shown below:
Then under Material Type select Ebooks and click Search.
