Starting Your Search

Here you can access helpful catalogue searches, where we've completed some of the first steps to get you started in your searching.

TIP - When searching topics with two or more terms it is best to use phrase searching. By adding quote marks such as "Chinese medicine" or "traditional Chinese medicine" you will be searching for those exact terms, next to one another, rather than randomly found throughout a text.​
