Woldcat has Index labels which allow for very specific searches. The following example shows how to search for John Stark's book The Literature of Exhaustion: Borges, Nabokov, and Barth.
When using boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) place them in upper case letters.
Use quotes to retrieve records with an exact phrase literature of exhaustion. Without quotes the individual words will be combined with an "and" operator.
Use the OR boolean operator, in upper case, to include alternate spellings, synomyms. or related terms; enclose the terms within parentheses (); this technique CANNOT be used in the first box, but CAN be used in the second or subsequent boxes.
The asterisk (*) is the truncation symbol. (e.g., argentin* matches argentina, argentinian, argentine, etc.)
You can use the drop down menus to change the index labels. In this example in the second box, "title" was changed to "keyword".
You can add additional rows to your search.
Once you find a book on your topic use the "Subjects" that appear in the "Description" of the record to find additional resources on your topic.
