Search books

You can use jolly character (*) to broaden your search scope. For example, the search term "architect*" retrieves records containing "architect", "architecture", "architectural", etc.

Boolean operators (AND, OR e NOT) may help you perform more refined searches:
  • AND is the default operator and finds a combination of search terms: searches "Louis Kahn" and "Louis AND Kahn" are equivalent, and retrieve all records containing both "Louis" and "Kahn"
  • OR finds records containing at least one of your search terms: "Louis OR Kahn" retrieves records containing "Louis" or "Kahn" or both.
  • NOT rules out a search term: "Louis NOT Kahn" retrieves records containing, for example, "Louis Armstrong" but not "Louis Kahn"
  • Use a combination: "Louis AND (Kahn OR Armstrong)" retrieves records containing "Louis" and "Kahn", or "Louis" and "Armstrong"

Your search will retrieve records for print and e-books alike.
