Search Tips

You can search for an author and title at the same time.

Example: john grisham the associate

You can search for…

  • words anywhere in the title
  • names of authors
  • important people, places or things in the book
  • subject, series titles, etc.


  • speedy motors
  • alexander mccall smith
  • botswana detective

You can also use * as a wildcard to take the place of any number of letters, or even by itself to match everything.


  • wom*n (matches woman, women, womyn, etc.)
  • car* (matches car, cars, card, cart, carts, carbon, caring, etc.)
  • *  (matches everything)

Check (or uncheck) the boxes next to the format types to include them (or not) in your search results.
