How do I find the title I want ?

Search boxes will be found at the top of most pages on the site. Enter a keyword or words in the box and click 'SEARCH'.

  • ISBN Search
    If you know the ISBN or EAN of the title you are looking for, enter it in the ISBN/code box and click 'Search' (an ISBN will have 10 or 13 digits, but other codes with up to 13 characters may be entered). An ISBN/EAN search will find only the title uniquely identified by that number.
  • Search by other features
    If you do not know the ISBN of the title you are looking for, you can search for it using keywords(s) in the following fields:  Title, Author. You need not use more than one of these fields. Using several fields will narrow down your search, but bear in mind that if any one of your keywords is wrong the system will fail to find a match, even if the others are correct.  A combination of keywords in the Author and Title fields is enough for most specific searches. You can also browse by Category using the drop down menu and clicking SEARCH.
