What is SuperSearch?
SuperSearch is a service providing a single interface to search the majority of material the Library subscribes to.
It allows searches across thousands of journals, newspaper articles, books, book chapters, book reviews, dissertations and electronic resources such as websites and free online journals. It also links to full text articles.
Introduction to SuperSearch
- Find SuperSearch on http://anulib.anu.edu.au - the Library home page.
- By default, SuperSearch works like Google. Type any words or phrases into the box. SuperSearch will interpret your search as both words and phrases and rank the results by relevance.
- To force SuperSearch to find a phrase instead of a combination of words, use quotation marks, e.g., "Sydney Morning Herald".
- To force Supersearch to combine individual words, use AND, OR and NOT between words. These search operators must be written in All CAPS, e.g. Australia AND “climate change”.
- Use the Advanced Search option
- Refine your Search with the options on the left of the results screen:
