If you know the title of a book, article, report, etc: start with "search the library"
Tips: Use whole title or distinctive portions. Use quotation marks to get fewer but more exact matches. Select "catalogue only" box on the main library page before you search, or databases > "university of Alberta library" in left menu of search results. Journal articles: start with article title but if necessary, search for the journal title.
