Searching Records in a Database
Playing the Field
Each of the records in the library catalog is divided into fields. The individual fields in a record make it possible to offer many search options.
Keyword is the most popular search option. A keyword search looks in every field for the words you enter. Author search looks for words just in the author field and ignores all the other fields; title search looks for words just in the title field. These searches allow you to be more specific.
