Make your search more efficient by following these simple guidelines.
Searching by Keyword
Enter one or more keywords into the search box with a space between each word. Our search engine will
restrict results to listings in which all your keywords appear somewhere in the title, author name, and/or
Searching by Title
Enter a word or exact phrase from the title. Only exact phrase matches will be returned. For example, to find the book Health
and Safety in Organizations, searching for health safety will not be successful, but health and safety
or simply safety will work.
Searching by Author
Type in the first name (if you know it) and last name of the author, with no comma between them. For example,
jack gordon. This can provide more specific results than searching for gordon, jack, which will
return titles whose author names contain either "gordon" or "jack."
Searching by ISBN or ISSN
An ISBN must contain 10 characters, and an ISSN must contain 8 characters, with no spaces or special characters
except for hyphens. Hyphens are acceptable, but not required.
General Search Facts
The search engine is not case-sensitive and does not recognize diacritical marks (such as accents). Correct
spelling is essential, as the search engine will only return exact matches of any word or name you enter.
If you enter multiple keywords and would like to see listings that contain at least one of them, use OR.
For example, if you enter leadership OR training, your search results will include all listings containing the
words "leadership" or "training," but not necessarily both.
Our search engine also supports wild card searches. If you want to find listings with words that contain a
string of letters, use an * (asterisk) after the text string you would like the results to contain. For
example, if you enter lead*, your results will turn up all listings containing "lead," "leaders," "leadership," etc.
