Advanced search enables you to define your search scope with greater precision. In line one, the first dropdown box options include title, author/creator, or subject. The second dropdown includes contains, is (exact), or starts with. The search can also be limited by material type, language and publication date.
Search results are records for physical or online items that match your search terms. The basic view of a record will include information such as the title, author, publication date, edition, and where you can find it (in the library or online). It also indicates the resource type, e.g. book, article, journal.
Physical items will have a location number and the library branch where it is held. For eBooks, journals and articles, click the ‘Available Online’ link. If a physical item is at another branch or on loan you can place a hold request.
The Library can have several versions of an item.
Click ‘versions/editions of this records exists. See all versions’ to expand the record to see edition and location information.
