Search Tips

The Basic Search is the default search for the McGill Library WorldCat homepage.

However, we suggest that searching is optimized within the advanced search option

Scrolling down the page the search can be limited by format: e.g. book, journal, newspaper, DVD, and/or year


  • To retrieve search results for a word with multiple endings, use the root with an asterisk; for example, modern* will retrieve research related to modern, modernism, modernist.
  • To search an exact phrase, use quotation marks; for example, "anni di piombo".
  • To narrow a broad topic, use AND between keywords; for example, tabucchi AND tempo.
  • To broaden a topic, use OR to search for terms that denote similar or different concepts: for example, (narrativo OR tempo) AND tabucchi.
