    • Using the Library Catalogue
    • So, how can I use the Library Catalogue effectively? On the left of the screen there is a list of contents. You can either go through the whole presentation or you can just choose to view the parts you require. You can also STOP or PAUSE the presentation at any time using the controls below
    • How do you get to the Library Catalogue? http:// www.liv.ac.uk /library/ Go to….
    • Access the Catalogue from here
    • The Main Catalogue Page is divided into 3 sections Information & Guides Various Search fields Search limiters
    • There is also a ‘Quick search’ facility you can use
    • Keyword searching Using the Library Catalogue
    • Click here
    • Scroll down the page for more information and search tips
    • Here you can see examples of how to refine your search
      • Boolean logic
      • consists of
      • three logical operators:
      • OR
      • 2. AND
      • 3. NOT
      • The OR operator broadens or widens a search to include documents containing either keyword.
      • The OR search is particularly useful when there are several common synonyms for a concept or variant spellings of a word .
      OR
    • Query:    I would like information about college. In this search, we will retrieve records in which AT LEAST ONE of the search terms is present. We are searching on the terms college and also university since documents containing either of these words might be relevant. College OR University This is illustrated by:
    • College University The shaded circle with the word college representing all the records that contain the word "college" The shaded circle with the word university representing all the records that contain the word "university" The shaded overlap area representing all the records that contain both "college" and "university"
    • The operator AND narrows a search by combining terms and retrieves every document that contains both of the words specified. AND
    • Query:    I'm interested in the relationship between poverty and crime. In this search, we retrieve records in which BOTH of the search terms are present Poverty AND Crime This is illustrated by:
    • The shaded area overlapping the two circles representing all the records that contain both the word "poverty" and the word "crime" Notice how we do not retrieve any records with only "poverty" or only "crime" Poverty Crime
    • Combining search terms with the NOT operator narrows a search by excluding unwanted terms. NOT
    • Query:     I want information about cats, but I want to avoid anything about dogs. Cats NOT Dogs In this search, we retrieve records in which ONLY ONE of the terms is present This is illustrated by:
    • The shaded area with the word cats representing all the records containing the word "cats" No records are retrieved in which the word "dogs" appears, even if the word "cats" appears there too Cats Dogs
      • Using Brackets (parentheses) in searches with more than one Boolean operator.
      • Parentheses indicate relationships between search terms.
      • They force the computer to process your search terms in the order you intend and to combine them in the way you want.
      • Computer search order
      • A database or search engine processes your search terms from left to right.
      • But it processes all the Boolean AND operators BEFORE processing any Boolean OR operators.
      • To change this order, group synonyms (or terms that belong together) with brackets.
      • Anything enclosed in brackets is evaluated first.
      • To see how this works, compare the two hypothetical library catalogue searches on the next slide:
    • Of course, you can use more than one OR in a search, as in: (tobacco OR smoking) AND (cancer OR health) Retrieves about 230 items Combines Catholic or Protestant "AND" those results with ireland This is exactly what you wanted (Catholic OR Protestant) AND Ireland Retrieves about 2500 items Combines Protestant and Ireland Retrieves all books about catholic This is not what you wanted Catholic OR protestant AND Ireland
    • Keep in mind that the operators AND and NOT generally limit your search (decreases the number of hits). The operator OR expands it (increases the number of hits). So the following strategies naturally follow: If you are retrieving too many records on your topic, try adding another search term with the Operator AND If you are retrieving too many records on an unrelated topic , try eliminating a word with the Operator NOT If you are retrieving too few records on your topic, try adding another search term with the Operator OR
    • A symbol at the end of a word stem provides for all variants on the word stem. The most commonly used symbol is the asterisk (*) For example, a search for educat* will retrieve educate, educating, education, educational, educator, educators, etc. Truncation or Wildcards
    • A symbol within a word provides for all possible variants inside a word or word stem. The most commonly used symbols for Wildcards are: # ? . For example , a search for wom#n will retrieve woman and women Another example Globali?ation will retrieve Globalisation and Globalization Wildcards
