Initially, you may search the entire collection or a subset of it. Searches may be restricted to the following by using the first dropdown menu:

  • journals (includes print, microform, electronic)
  • electronic resources (includes e-journals, Web site, databases/indexes)
  • videos/DVDs
  • CDs/LPs/Tapes
  • music scores
  • government documents

If your search retrieves too many entries, you may narrow the results using the LIMIT/SORT option.

Here are some examples of options for limiting:

MATERIAL type: BOOK; SERIAL; VIDEORECORDING
YEAR of publication: After 1920 and Before 1980
LANGUAGE FRENCH; CHINESE
WHERE item is located: SPECIAL COLLECTIONS; SCIENCE
WORDS in the AUTHOR,
