LibSearch has many facets/filters on the left side of the page to narrow to specific types of results. You can include or exclude types of resources, limit to local library collections, and more.
You can also use the scopes in the search bar to narrow or broaden the resources you’re looking at.
The scopes or available searches can be changed to help you to find the resource you are looking for:
If you want to see all catalog items with a specific author or subject, use the Browse feature listed under the ... tab at the top of the page.
Browse can search by the following categories:
For title searches that include an ampersand (&) between terms (such as Obstetrics & Gynecology), the search is also treated as if you had entered the word AND.
For exact searches (such as "Obstetrics & Gynecology"), you may get different results because the system removes the ampersand ( & ) from the search query. In addition, special characters (such as $, @, and so forth) are also removed from exact title searches and are not included in the search.
? – enter a question mark to perform a single character wildcard search. For example, type wom?n to search for records that contain the strings woman, women, and so forth. Search results for advanced search with ? as a wildcard for one character may be inconsistent.
* – enter an asterisk to perform a multiple character wildcard search. For example, type cultur* to search for records that contain strings, such as culture, cultural, and culturally.
Advanced Search: Users can enclose the * in double quotes ( "*" ) and select at least one filter to see all records of the filter type.
Searching for multiple ISSN numbers concatenated together with commas returns invalid results. The solution is to conduct separate searches for each ISSN. E.g. searching for 1759-9660, 1759-9679 returns zero results. Rather: search for 1759-9660. Look at the results. Then conduct a subsequent search for 1759-9679 and view those results separately.
