Types of Searches

 

You can find scholarly articles and books by searching the library databases and OneSearch, the library's catalog. How you search involves not only the words or phrases you enter, but the kind of search you choose to perform.

There are two kinds of searches:

  • Keyword search
  • Subject search
     

Understanding the difference between these will help you do a better job of searching.
