KU Library: How to search for books and ebooks

Begin Your Research Here

The Library’s SearchEverything Box which is located at the top of our homepage is the gateway to research! It allows you to search 95% of our resources at one time. Search for books, ebooks, journal articles, and more...

  • Tips on using the SearchEverything Box: 
  • To search, you can use Boolean operators capitalized such as AND, OR and NOT. Example: Title of Article AND Author Name
  • It is best not to use punctuation in the SearchEverything Box such as colons, semicolons and commas
  • You can use the wildcards ? or * but not as the first character of the search term or in a phrase search.  Example:  To find Olsen or Olson search for Ols?n.  To find one or more characters within or at the end of a word use an *.  Example: Ch*ter or Temp*
  • Proximity searches limit result sets to terms within a specified number of words from each other. Example: "cornering force"~5 finds cornering and force within 5 words of one another
  • On the left, under "Refine Your Search" you can limit to "Scholarly and Peer-Review" to find academic articles. You can also refine your results by content type and date.
