Finding Books and More


What is SuperSearch?

SuperSearch is a portal that provides a single search across the entire library collection. It searches all kinds of resources including journals; newspapers; books and book chapters; reviews; dissertations; electronic resources; and more.

Tips for using SuperSearch can be found on our website or ask for assistance from the Information Desk in any library branch.

Example search - SuperSearch

In the example below, we are searching for content which includes the terms eco-tourism AND Australia. We used the Content Type filter to refine our search to include only books/ebooks, book chapters and book reviews.

There are many filter options available under Refine your results on SuperSearch, including:

  • A - Availability: search for material that meets specific criteria (e.g. available online, peer-reviewed journals, Open Access)
  • B - Date range: search for when an item was published
  • C - Subject: search within a specific discipline
  • D - Language: refine by language of content
  • E - Library: refine by location of content
