1) How to Use Simple Search

When you are looking for a book and you know the title of the book, the name of the author, etc, enter the title of the book.

For example, you have this bibliographic citation:

Gibson, John G. Gaelic Cape Breton Step-dancing: An Historical and Ethnographic Perspective. Montreal: McGill-Queen's University Press, 2017. 


Enter the title, Gaelic Cape Breton Step-dancing: An Historical and Ethnographic Perspective in Simple Search and press the enter key (See the image below). If the title of the book is not uncommon, you may also include the name of the author(s).

Novanet Title Search
