Teacher Page:

There are multiple ways to execute a search in Booksource Classroom.  Whether searching title/ISBN, author, keyword, or level information, our search system will help you locate the title in your library for quick and easy access.  

To begin your search, go to Teacher Page > Library and select the magnifying glass icon to the top right of your screen.  A new menu will appear which allows you to execute and filter your search results.  When using a general Keyword search, we recommend limiting the categories you are searching by deseleting categories that do not apply.  For example, searching a keyword "animals" might return titles where "Animal" is in listed in the title or where "Animals" is listed in the annotation.

Search Levels

Three search prefixes are supported to make searching more precise and efficient.

The level prefix will search whatever level is shown in the level menu at the time of the search; Guided Reading Level, Lexile Level or AR Level.


To search reading levels, use the prefix "level:". 

  • Guided Reading Leve: searching "level:G" in the search bar would show all titles with a Reading Level G
  • Accelerated Reading Level: searching "level:2.3" would show all titles at Accelerated Reading Level "2.3"
  • Lexile Level: search "level:720" would show all titles in your library with Lexile measure of 720, including measures with Lexile codes AD, NC, HL, IG, GN, BR, and NP

To search for titles on Interest Level, use the prefix "interest-level:". You can search for a single level or a range of levels. For example, a search for "interest-level:K-3", will show titles with interest levels like P-2 and 1-4. For a single Interest Level value, use the prefix "interest-level:3." 

Search Custom Tags and Copies

Copy ID, location and condition are searchable in your library using the same prefix method.  The following are examples of how to search for copy ID, location and condition. 

  • To search for a specific copy ID - "copyid:103452779"
  • To find titles in a specific location - "location:bin 1"
  • To find titles of a certain condition - "condition:good"


Search Language

To search for titles in a specific language, use the term "language:". Alternatively, search for "language:english" for English Language titles.
