1.2 Advanced Search
You can access the Advanced Search by clicking Advanced Search
on the catalogue homepage or search results screen.
The available search options are the same as on the homepage, but you may use one or more of them simultaneously. If you want to combine more than three search options, use Add Search Row
button to add more search input rows. Clicking the X
button will close the search input row.
The current search library is displayed under the Search Library
box. If you accessed the catalogue from your library's homepage or catalogue URL, the default search library is your library or borrowing zone. If your library system has multiple branches or a borrowing zone that includes multiple libraries you can use the Search Library
box to select different branches or libraries.
By default, the search results are in order of greatest to least relevance. See Public Catalogue Order of Results
. In the Sort Results
box you may select to order the search results by relevance, title, author, publication date, or popularity.
Limit to Available
When the Limit to Available
checkbox is checked search results are limited based on an item’s current circulation status. Titles without available items in the selected search library will not be displayed.
Exclude Electronic Resources
When the Exclude Electronic Resources
checkbox is checked electronic resources are not included in the search results.
Group Formats and Editions
When the Group Formats and Editions
checkbox is checked all formats and editions of the same title are grouped as one result. For example, the DVD and the first and second print editions of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
will appear together.
You can filter your search by:
- Literary Form
- Publication Year
Publication year is inclusive. For example, if you set Publication Year Between 2005 and 2007, your result items will be published in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
