Help Center - Tips to find the book you are looking for!
If you enter search terms into the toolbar search and you don't see the book(s) you are looking for:
Check your search terms: is everything spelled correctly (title and/or author)?
If you are searching for an author who uses ONLY first initials instead of a first name, this is a common source of confusion. The initials may appear as "A.B. Smith" (no space after the first period) or "A. B. Smith" (a period after each initial, and a space after each period) or even "AB Smith" (this is uncommon).
The most common way that an author's name would appear who uses only first initials would be "A. B. Smith" (a period after each initial, and a space after each period).
If you don't know how the author's initials appear on the listing exactly, try searching for the last name only, or last name plus a book title by the author if you know it.
You may be searching Only Posted or Only UnPosted books or Only Wish Listed books.
Click the link "Don't see the book you are looking for?" at the upper right of the page.
This will expand your search for you and find the book!
If you get too many (or less relevant) search results:
Try using the Title or Author fields in the Book Browser
Using the Quick Search space at the top right of the site is a Keyword Search
Keyword Searches will look for any book listing that contains ANY of the words you enter
Keyword Searches include the Book Description
The Title or Author field of the Book Browser is a more specific search
Each of these searches look for an exact match to all of the terms you type into the field (that's why spelling in those fields matters!)
The Book Browser is accessible from the menu under Search at the top of any page on the site.
