When should I use an Exact Search?

Use the Exact Search when:

  1. You have the complete information for a title, author, etc.
    Examples:
    1. Search for the book The Business of America.

      • It is not necessary to capitalize the first letter of proper nouns or titles.
      • Since the title begins with an article (the), omit the article and begin the search with business. (You can omit any article {a, an, the} at the beginning of a title.)
         
    2. Search for the scholarly journal American Journal of Speech and Language Pathology.

        Screen capture of a journal title search
       
      • Once again, it is not necessary to capitalize the first letters of titles.
      • GIL allows you to search for a periodical (newspaper, magazine, journal) in your library, but GIL does not allow you to search for articles in a periodical.
         
  2. You want to browse a list of an authors, titles, call numbers, etc.
