There are four ways to search for a particular book: use the title,
keyword, author or ISBN.
Enter one or more keywords using any combination of the book's title or
subject heading. When using more than one keyword, your search results
would return only the books that matches ALL of the keywords you enter. Keep
it simple, there is no need to enter any Boolean commands such as AND or OR.
If you know the author of a particular book, you may key in the first four
letters of the author's last name, with the first letter properly
capitalized. However, this is the least efficient search method.
Each book in print is assigned an ISBN, or a 10-digit identifying
number. If you should know the ISBN number, you can enter it (please omit
dashes) in the search box to get the correct title right away. Beard Books
titles have ISBN prefixes of 158798--- and 1893122---
