Q. How do I search using the Advanced Search option?


The Advanced Search allows you to design searches that retrieve more focused results.

Select search fields and incorporate Boolean operators (AND, OR and NOT) between search terms in your queries. Apply filters before executing a search to further refine your query and limit the search results returned.

The Add a new line link supports the addition of up to 16 rows (20 rows total, including the four displayed by default).

Select the arrow in the box saying "Any Fields" to see which fields are searchable via the Advanced Search

The Basic options are the ones most commonly used:

  • Any Fields (default)
  • Author (includes Author & Corporate Author)
  • Title
  • Subject

You can further limit results by 

  • Material type
  • Language 
  • Publication Date
