What are title and author searches, and how do I do them?
To perform these searches, click on 'advanced catalogue search' under the catalogue search box and select the relevant tab (Title or Author). You can also search for an author and title at the same time, under the 'Auth/Title' tab.
In this video, two types of searches are demonstrated: a journal title search, and an author search.
You can search for any words from the title of an item (book, series, thesis, video, etc).
In the example below, we are searching for a journal titled Art in Australia. We entered the title in quotations, which only searches items with that exact phrase as the title. If you don't know the full title, try searching for keywords from the title.
You can search through all ANU material, or limit the results to a particular location. In the example below, we limited our search to only ANU Journals.
You can search for the names of authors, artists, composers and corporate authors of an item.
In the example below, we are searching for works by Australian author Patrick White. When searching for an individual author you need to enter their surname first, followed by their given name.
