Most of this system's public libraries are closed Monday-Wednesday, May 11-13, 2015 for training. During this time, public library patrons and staff will not have access to this old system -- ONLINE RENEWALS ARE SUSPENDED. Please contact your public library for assistance on or after May 14, 2015.
Academic library patrons will not be able to request items through the online catalog May 8 to June 15, 2015 but Interlibrary Loan service is available.
Please contact your library's circulation department to request items during this transition period.
We regret the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
|Adjacency||Multiple words are searched together as one phrase.
Example : world health organization
Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk. '*' for 1-5 characters, '**' for open-ended truncation, '?' to replace a single character anywhere within a word.
Examples : environment* polic*, comput**, wom?n
Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words.
Example : stocks and bonds
Example : (alaska or canada) and (adventure and not vacation)
Use "near" to specify words close to each other, in any order.
Example : california near university
|Field limits||A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).|
|Grouping||Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.|
