Once you have found an interesting book, you can use the DEWEY number to find similarly cataloged books. E.g. searching for KEYWORD
finds, among others, two books about Nevada with DEWEY 979.3. Searching only for DEWEY 979.3 finds more books about Nevada.
Enter one or more consecutive words from the book TITLE. E.g.
to find books with "North Carolina" in the title.
Enter one author's surname or partial surname. Less is sometimes more, e.g. searching for
Clark County Genealogical Society
will fail because the author is entered as "Society, Clark County Genealogical." Search for
Clark County Gen
instead. Note: sometimes author names have been abbreviated, i.e.
Willamette Valley Genealogical Society
Enter a word or phrase that may have been used to describe the book's contents.
You can enter search terms in more than one search box. There is no boolean AND search function for a single search box, but you can simulate one by searching for one term, e.g.
, increasing the hits/page to a larger number, then using your browser's search function (Ctrl-f often brings up a search box) to locate the other term, e.g.
to find Oregon Vital records.
