Search Tips

When searching Onesearch for books, consider setting the search to "Keyword" and entering "Corrections" as the search term. This will provide you with a list of books that deal with a significantly sized listing of books on the topic.

Also consider setting the search to "Subject" and entering "Corrections" as the search term. If you require more materials set the search to "All Fields" and enter in search terms like "Prisons" or "Jail" as the search terms. This will also provide you with a listing of relevant books and materials.
