Two types of searches will help locate books: the "SUBJECT" and "KEYWORD" searches.
Milton Glaser AND "If apples had teeth" = results will have everything that has those two things, but not appearing in a resource individually
"Graphic Design" OR "visual communication" = results will include everything that includes the words together or individually in a resource
Typography NOT serif = results will include all typography but not serif
Serendipitous Browsing leads to great finds in the library! You can do this without a computer, just take your self to the circulating collection and look to see what you can find! Use the Library of Congress (LOC) Classification System link to search physical areas of the library. The numbers and letters on the spine of books help you find any subject area you are interested in. You will find information you may not necessarily find in the online catalog. Just use the chapter titles and indexes to find what you are looking for.
