Search Tips for finding for books and ebooks

Search the library catalog for print books and the ebook database for ebooks to find more career related information.

 

For the best results, search using specific keywords or short phrases rather than full sentences, questions, or strings of words. Thinking about your topic and different aspects of your topic can help you to identify relevant keywords. Good keywords are single words (usually nouns)  OR specific phrases (two or more words that must go together to make sense). When searching for an exact phrase, use quotations.  Here is an example of some keywords and phrases:

             schematics          "project management"           "structural engineering"               architecture             construction  

To find books related to careers add the phrase "vocational guidance" or a keyword related to career/job searching. For example:

  • architecture AND "vocational guidance"
  • "resume writing" AND architecture
  • "employment interviewing" AND construction
