Beyond Jenks

NOBLE (All Libraries)
When searching the NOBLE Catalog, any time you would like to look beyond Jenks for resources from other NOBLE libraries, use the Location drop down to and select the "NOBLE (All Libraries) option. This allows you to cross-search all collections within the NOBLE libraries for materials. Use the "Place Hold" button on the book's record to have the material sent directly to Jenks.

Tips for Searching the Catalog

Use the basic search box and enter any combination of keywords into the search line. The best keywords to use for your two paper topics will be either the individual's name (e.g. George Boole) or the name of the math topic/trend you are studying (e.g. Information Theory).

Subject Headings
Once you run a few searches and find a few books about or related to your topic, use those records as jumping off points for related information. On a book's record, look for the Subject section. Scan the list of linked subjects for any that are near your topic. Clicking on those subject links will provide a list of all other books with Jenks that have also been tagged with this same subject.
