The browse search allows for a single-word search for Keywords, Title, Title (exact), Author, Subject, Series, ISSN, or ISBN. Use this search to browse the collection, regardless of format (i.e., book, periodical, microfiche, etc.). The only search to produce a results list of titles is the Title (exact). All other searches produce a list of terms in the system with the specific word being searched.
Select the index you want to search from the drop down menu. Enter the term you want to search in the input box, and press the Search button or Enter on the keyboard.
Keywords: Use this search to find any word in the title, author, subject and series indexes plus the notes field of the bibliographic records.
Title: Use this search if you know a word in the title or series.
Title (exact): Use this search if you know the first word in the title or series title. A list of titles beginning with your search term will appear, along with the number of records that match the title. Click on the title you want to look at. A list of the titles and authors will be shown. From there go to the full description of the titles you choose.
