To start searching in your PAC simply type whatever search term you want in the Search box.  Refer to the example below.



You can search using a single word, or type a phrase.  You can search using an author's name or a specific title.  Search terms containing punctuation (asterisk, question mark, exclamation point, dash, comma, colon, semi-colon, parentheses, forward or backward slash or a possessive apostrophe) are acceptable.  

If searching using a contraction, typing won't or wont (without apostrophe) will return the same search results.

There are many ways to narrow your search.  See Search Options for a variety of topics to help you get the results you want.
