Search Tips

Keyword Searching  
Typically, when you search, you will use Keywords.  Simply enter the basic ideas/keywords of your topic in the search box.  The computer will search for books containing those keywords in the title, subjects, and descriptions of the books.  
Subject Searching  
Subject searching is more "powerful" than keyword searching.  It allows you to use a specific vocabulary to find books in the catalog.  To find a good subject, look at the display page of a book you already like.  Simply click on the subject link to run a search

Some sample subjects for this project are:
Human Beings -- Origin
Evolution (Biology) 
Brain -- Evolution
