LibrarySearch can help you with more specialized research using the Advanced Search option. Using Advanced Search you can refine your search to generate results that match very specific criteria including limiting your search by publication date, material type, language, date range, and search scope.
Using Advanced Search will give you more search options. The default search is by keyword, but you can also choose Author/creator, Title, Subject, ISBN, ISSN and Call number. Select "Any field" to change your search (see below).
Using Advanced Search will allow you to change the scope of where you search. The default is 'UO + Summit + Articles, etc.,' but you can change the drop-down menu to select specific library collections (Curriculum, Documents, Children's and YA Collection, Knight Reference, Music, and Special Collections). This option allows you to search the selected collection limiting your search to only materials found within that particular collection.
Want to see all of the DVDs in French? Or all of the children's books in Spanish? "Wildcard" searching allows you to do an open-ended search all of the materials within a particular collection or scope.
To limit your search to a language, year, or material type, select the search scope, the limiter, and use $$ as your wildcard.
You can limit by publication date by entering a start date and/or end date for the dates you are interested in. You can put in just the year(s) you are interested in, or you can specify a specific month and date.
You can use the material type limiter to search by All items, Print books, eBooks, Articles, Journals, eAudio, Streaming Video, Maps, Scores, Images, Dissertations & Theses, and Reviews.
To exclude items in languages you do not want to appear in your search results, limit your search by selecting the language you want to use.
