Generally, search results are only as good as the information put into them.

Keyword searches can turn up most results, but certain information can throw off a search engine. So, if you are trying to find a book using a keyword search, enter only the author's last name and a few unique words from the title. DO NOT use definite articles ("the"), prepositions ("of"), or punctuation, all of which are extraneous and/or problematic for search engines.
