Search Tips

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

  • To retrieve search results for a word with multiple endings, use the root with an asterix; for example, vote* will retrieve research related to vote, votes, and voting.
  • To search an exact phrase, use quotation marks; for example, "liberal party of canada".
  • To narrow a broad topic, use AND between keywords; for example, "elections" AND Canada.
  • To broaden a research topic, use OR to search for terms that denote similar concepts; for example, (voting OR elections AND Canada).
