Advanced Searching

Use * or ? for truncated searching. Also called stemming, this technique allows you to search for various word endings and spellings simultaneously.

Limits and Sorts

Limits can be applied only when using keyword searches. There are limit categories for type of material, language and library.

The sorting feature allows your results to be sorted by publication date, title, author, and type of media. The default sort is publication date in descending order. In the results screen, sorts can be applied multiple times.
