Combo Search

To search our catalog using the Combination Search:
Enter the search term(s) in the field(s) and click the Search button. This search can combine Author, Title, Subject, Keyword, and/or Donor searches.
Note: If you enter a term in more than one field, the terms are automatically joined by the Boolean operator AND, narrowing your search. You don't have to enter terms in more than one field to receive results.

Expert Search

To search our catalog using the Expert Search:
Click to select a search type and enter criteria in the corresponding search terms(s) field(s). If necessary, specify additional searches and join them with Boolean operators:

  • AND - narrows your search, reducing the number of results. All search terms must be met for a record to be returned.
  • OR - broadens your search, increasing the number of results. Only one of your search terms must be met for a record to be returned.
  • AND NOT - satisfies one search term while eliminating another.
You can perform complex searches using the Boolean operators described above to join up to three search terms. This allows you to generate more precise results.
