Request Books from other University System of Maryland Libraries

By the way, this does not work for journal articles. Use Interlibrary Loan for that (see "Interlibrary Loan" tab in this guide).

Boolean: Combining Keywords

This YouTube video from the University of Auckland, New Zealand demonstrates how to combine search keywords using the Boolean AND, OR, and NOT. It also shows you how to apply Boolean searching in a variety of database and catalog search screens.
