WorldCat Discovery: Basic Search

Basic Search

The basic search is a simple keyword search. You can start your search without restricting it in any way by entering the search terms you are looking for. You will likely receive a very large number of results and need to filter to narrow things down.

Search Commands

Quotation Marks are used to enclose multiple words in a word or title search to retrieve the exact sequence of the words.  Great if you know the exact title of a resource. Example: "Transcultural Nursing"

 

AND will search for results that include both terms. AND must be capitalized. Example: 

transcultural nursing AND giger

 

OR will search for either term. OR must be capitalized. Example: (giger OR davidhizar) AND transcultural nursing

 

NOT will eliminate the following term.  NOT must be capitalized. Example: 

transcultural nursing NOT giger
