What are those little, round icons under the search box?

The icons are links to three special search features not available in the main search box.

Click on this to open a browse search within the page. Use it if you know how something begins, such as a title, author surname, series, etc.  Type in your term(s) and choose what you'd like to browse by clicking the appropriate button.  Try Percy Jackson to find all titles beginning with that phrase.

Click on this to open a call number browse by library within the page.  Type in the start of a known call number, choose a library, and you'll see a list of holdings, in order of call number. Try J DVD for kids' DVDs, SPA for Spanish language titles, or E for children's picture books.

Click on this to open a power search that allows Boolean operators within the page.  Choose fields and operators and type in your terms to construct a detailed search.  Compare a search for cat vs. one for cat OR kitten OR feline, or try a search for books by Patterson NOT James. 


IMPORTANT!

  • You may not use the back button in your browser, or it will break the embedded search. Instead, use the Go back, Previous,and Next buttons in the blue bar at the top or bottom of the embedded search frame.
  • Author names must be entered last name first with a comma, e.g. Rowling, J.K. or Michener, James.
  • When searching for a phrase, enclose it within single quotes, rather than double.
