When searching for information in books, consider:
scholarly or popular
books usually have a longer publication cycle, so the information can assumed to be current to roughly 6-12 months before the date when the book was published
books that are located through databases and the library catalog will likely be tagged with keywords and subject headings that refer to the content of the book as a whole; therefore, it is important to think broadly in terms of what kind search terms you use

"Harrison's is intended for learners throughout their careers. For students, Part 1, Chapter 1 begins with an overview of "The Practice of Medicine". In this introductory chapter, the editors continue the tradition of orienting clinicians to the science and the art of medicine, emphasizing the values of our profession while incorporating new advances in technology, science, and clinical care. Part 2, "Cardinal Manifestations and Presentation of Diseases" is a signature feature of Harrison's. These chapters eloquently describe how patients present with common clinical conditions, such as headache, fever, cough, palpitations, or anemia, and provide an overview of typical symptoms, physical findings, and differential diagnosis. Mastery of these topics prepares students for subsequent chapters on specific diseases they will encounter in courses on pathophysiology and in clinical clerkships"--
