A Perfect Occasion To Use Advanced Search

Q: Yesterday someone asked, "What Star Trek books are in right now???"

A: Go to Advanced Search in the catalog. Tell it you want "star trek" in Any Field. Click on the checkbox 'limit search to available items'. Choose which location. Choose format Books. Hit the Search button. Voila!
There's heaps of them in at the moment. Maybe not so popular anymore. :-)

This search strategy can be adapted to all kinds of specific desires. Try using advanced search to ask for what you want.
