Advanced Search gives you much more control over your searches. Use the drop-down menus to specify what type of search you want, what type of material you're looking for, what language, and even publication date or range of years.
Researchers may wish to enter Advanced Search immediately due to the full range of precise searching available here.
- Advanced Search lets you search by Title, Author/creator, Subject, or Any field. Looking for your search terms in Any field would be most flexible and a good choice if you're not certain where your search terms might occur in a record.
- You can specify word order for your search terms, if that is important. You can choose contains, is (exact), or starts with to specify word order. Contains would be the most flexible choice and would find your search terms in any order.
- Material type includes All items, Books, Articles, Journals, Images, and Movies and Music.
- Language currently allows you to search for results in Any language, English, French, or German. (If you would like to see search results in a different language, keep the Language drop-down menu set to Any language, do your search, and then use Tweak my results to see any other languages represented in your specific search results.)
