Here are some tips for searching a specific genre:

book cover1. It can be helpful to find a specific subject heading that matches the genre. I searched "science fiction" and specified the field as [subject] and got 510 results.

2. You can further limit the results by location: [Popular Reading Collection], which narrows the results to 77.

3. If you were interested in "Mars", you could use that as your search term. That results in 2196 items. Next limit your results using the genre limit in the left sidebar to 'science fiction'. Now you have six highly specific books to choose from. 

4. Don't forget the date limiter if you want to choose a book from a specific time period.
