Library Search


Keyword searching

The catalogue is the key to the collection; use it to find primary resources such as books, exam papers, journals and audiovisual items. Be ready to use a wide range of terms, both general and precise.

For example:

  • Geographical names - Australia, United States, Europe, etc.
  • Time elements - Contemporary, Modern, 18th century etc.
  • Genre or Style - fantasy, realism, adventure etc
  • Audience - young adult, juvenile, younger readers etc.
  • Additional concepts - family, racism, gender etc

Use quotation marks around two or more words to search as a phrase e.g. "suspension of disbelief" or "Greek mythology"

Truncate words to pick up different forms or endings. e.g. archetyp* will search for archetype, archetypical, archetypes etc.

Use wildcards to adjust for multiple spellings  e.g. organi?ation will search for organisation and organization
