Quick catalogue search tips (Tip of the Week)

Posted on

By Sarah Roussel-Lewis

Having trouble searching for that item you think you know the title of? Well here’s a quick tip that might help you in the future.

If you only remember partial information from a title, you can truncate a word with an asterisk (*) which will then search the catalogue for any variation of that word. For example, if you are searching for a Canadian tax report but are having troubles remembering the title, you could enter Canad* Tax Report* into the title search bar and it will search all variations of Canad (Canada & Canadian) and report (report, reports, reporting and reporter).


Truncating your search will allow you to get on with your research quicker, giving you more time to evaluate the material available at the library. If you need any other help searching the catalogue, please let us know at reference@lawsociety.sk.ca or call us at (306) 569-8020.
