Library Catalog (Polaris)

There are several ways you can begin your search on Polaris. Keyword searching works similar to Google. Just type in your search terms and choose among the suggestions from the drop down menu or use your own terms. You can also use the Browse tab to search by subject headings, title, and author. Type in your desired terms and browse the results to narrow your search. Advanced searching allows you to search all record fields, should you require something more specific, while Boolean searching allows you to explore a wider range of concepts. Based on yourneed, choose your search strategy accordingly.

Following is a sample list of subject search terms to help you begin your search. Please bear in mind that this is only a sample and that there are many other subject terms you can use. If the term or concept you are looking for is not listed here, just type it into one of the search tabs described above and go from there. Also, be sure to use the left side navigation tool in Polaris for “instant” assistance in expanding or narrowing your search terms.
