How To Find Books in BOSS/Library Catalog


BOSS: Use BOSS if you would like to find all kinds of books (and articles) on a topic, and if you're willing to go through lots of hits to pick and choose.  This search works with keywords (important words) about your topic.  Start with one or two keywords;  use the options on the sidebar to narrow down the search. Advantages of BOSS:  Searches for keywords in many "fields" of the records;  option to choose books, articles, or everything.  Caution:  BOSS may return irrelevant results.
