An advanced search returns results based on a combination of search terms from various fields (e.g. format, language, date, location).
An advanced search gives you more control over your search results. It allows you to limit your searches in various different ways, which can narrow your search results down to give you a more focused and relevant selection.
To perform an advanced search, click on ADVANCED SEARCH to the right of the search box.
When performing an advanced search, you can use a number of search options which will help narrow your results:
A - apply your keywords to all fields, or narrow by the title, author, or subject
B - search all material types, or narrow by format (e.g. journals, books, articles, images)
C - limit your searches to a particular language
When your results are displayed, you can filter even further using the options in the left hand menu.
D - use the tick to select multiple filters
E - to exclude results, hover over the filter and select the red exclude icon
