MARQCAT Search Tips

Books are useful for in depth information, historical context, overview, synthesis and analysis. Often a chapter or two are all that is needed. The process of writing, editing and publishing means even the most recently published book may not contain the most current information on a topic.

Using Advanced Keyword Search in MARQCAT:

Identify words or phrases that represent the main ideas in your topic, then:

  • Try the words as "Any Field" searches for widest retrieval
  • Try the same words as "Subject" searches, then use the catalog's suggested headings
  • When you find a good book, check the list of Subjects  in the record of that book for additional ideas
