Search the Library Catalog

When searching for books by keyword or subject using the Library Catalog, use a combination of general and specific terms to find titles that will meet your information need. Some keywords you might try are:

  • nursing
  • patient care
  • healthcare
  • clinical competence
  • diversity
  • multi-cultural
  • empathy
  • spirituality

Use the word AND to combine different concepts, narrowing your search.

  • patient care AND spirituality
  • nursing AND diversity

Use the word OR to combine similar concepts, expanding your search.

  • diversity OR equity OR inclusion
  • nursing OR nurses OR nurse

Finally, use them together, with similar concepts in parentheses to create a complex search on your topic.

  • (nursing OR nurses OR nurse) AND (diversity OR equity OR inclusion)

This strategy will also work when searching for articles.
