If you know more, you will find more

Christine Burroughs of Shaker Heights Public Library, and Mike Monaco of Cleveland Public Library, presented the program “If you know more, you will find more: tips and tricks from insiders for finding almost anything in your catalog” at the Ohio Library Council’s Northeast Chapter conference on March 27, 2013 at Kent State University.  This program gives some tips on more effectively searching your ILS and/or OPAC, especially for those situations where simple keyword searches either fails or gives you too many hits.

The slides from the program are here (Google docs presentation — offline temporarily for updates) and the two handouts are here (Google Docs document) and here (Microsoft Excel spreadsheet).

This presentation will also be offered at the OLC North Chapter conference on April 18.
