HOW TO USE THE

Helpful Hints:

The Library Search data is updated periodically. It may not reflect new materials recently added to the Library.

The Library has multiple copies of many of the resources. Duplicate copies will not show up in the search results.

The following search methods can be used. Correct spelling is necessary. The more partial the search, the broader the results. Likewise, the more complete the search, the narrower the results.

Search by Title - Use full or part of a title. Titles beginning with words like "the" or "a" must follow the title after a comma. (e.g. Story of Easter, The).
