On the Library homepage the default search on the Quick Search Menu is a SIMPLE search. This search can be used to research a topic if you do not have a specific author or title in mind. Click the SEARCH button to execute the search. The list of results will be sorted by relevancy.
When you click on a result, the full item details of that item are displayed. These include author, title, publisher, edition, description, the general subject area and shelf number location.
For more advanced searching options, link into the "click here " option. This links you to the "Advanced Search" screen, which allows you to complete a variety of combination searches using options such as keywords, author, title and shelf number. You can also limit your results by item type, publication date range as well as library location.
