General search help 

Enter one or more words to search for into the box and press enter.

You can refine your search by using the boolean operators (AND or AND NOT) or by using double quotes to indicate that you are looking for an exact phrase, not just each word separately. You can widen your search by using a single (?) or multiple character wild card (*), or another Boolean operator (OR).

For instance you can enter "War and Peace" (including the quotes) to search for the book by Tolstoy. Entering War AND Peace will find all records containing the words War and Peace separately but not necessarily as a phrase. Entering philo* will find items containing both philosophy and philosphical.

Select your display format and sort order using the options at the bottom of the screen. If you wish to scan a list of records and then look at one or two in further detail click the Brief radio button and then refine you display choice by selecting display fields from the drop down menu. If you want to go straight to the more detailed record, click the Full radio button and select the display fields from the drop down menu. Similarly you can choose your sort order for the results.

Click the Search button or press Enter to run your search or Clear to perform another search.
