Attention Google users! New searching possibilities

October 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm Leave a comment

You may already be familiar with seamless article searching via Google Scholar, but did you know you can now search for library books directly in Google?

To look up a book, simply type your keywords followed by the words librarycatalogue (all one word) and insead. The resulting link will lead you directly to the book’s record in the library catalogue, where you can check the book’s location, call number and view the table of contents.

 
Tips:

  • Avoid broad keywords like ‘management’ – add additional keywords (title words, authors, publishers) to make your search more specific
  • Use quotes around your keywords if they are an exact title

Of course, for advanced searching such as limiting to a library, a document type or a search field, go directly to the library catalogue.
