When searching for books in our library you may try several approaches as follows:
1. BASIC SEARCH: Search by your specific topic, e.g. AIDS Try a subject search first and if that doesn't yield good results, search by keyword next.
2. BOOLEAN SEARCH: Once in Destiny, click on the mini tab for Power search. Put in multiple terms, such as women and civil rights. This tells Destiny to look for books that are about women's civil rights. I chose to search both fields as subject; but I could have searched using keyword as well. Try both!
3. SERIES SEARCH: Again use the Power search capability. In the first field, type your topic, e.g. endangered species. (You may choose to leave the default search (which is keyword) or arrow down to subject for more precise results.) Make sure the operator AND is selected between search fields. In the second field, arrow down to series. Type in the name of one of the series listed below. Try them out one at a time until you get good results.
