So many books and so little time. Search what we have! 

Search Our Library

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. Oregon, 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. Vital to find Oregon Vital records.

DEWEY contains         
 
TITLE contains           
 
AUTHORS contains   
 
KEYWORDS contains 
 

Start search at entry:    hits/page: 
 

Once you have found an interesting book, you can use the DEWEY number to find similarly cataloged books. E.g. searching for KEYWORD gold 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. North Carolina to find books with “Nort Carolina” in the title. north ca also works

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. WVGS for Willamette Valley Genealogical Society.
