How do I exclude unwanted terms from my search?
You can use the minus sign in your keyword search to remove certain words, e.g. placing
'John Adams -Quincy' in the keywords field will return results about John Adams but not John Quincy Adams.
How can I get fewer results?
If you use more than one keyword, our search engine will restrict the results to products that match all the keywords you enter.
How can I get more results?
Too many keywords can constrain your search. Use fewer keywords to find more results.
Search results will contain all terms by default (AND). Use the vertical pipe character for OR searches, a minus in front of a term (-) to exclude it, and the asterisks (*) to match a portion of a word.
What is the ISBN?
ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number.
It is a 10 or 13-digit unique number that is assigned to every book and can be found on the back cover, above the barcode (e.g. ISBN 978-1-345-45985-5).
How do I search by ISBN?
If you choose to search by ISBN, search only by that field and make sure you type the number correctly, without any dashes.
How do I sort my results?
When searching our bookstore, you can sort your search results in the way that is most useful to you by selecting the sort option. Once your search has produced a list of relevant items, select a way to sort by clicking the "Sort results by" box at the top of the list.
