Title and Author Search

Use the Title option when you already know the name of a specific book or item. The following tips will increase your chance of finding a title successfully:

  1. Omit any initial articles, (a, an, the) when they are the first word of a title.
  2. Don’t worry about using capital letters or punctuation.

For example, type sun also rises, not The Sun Also Rises.
