Q. What is the difference between Simple Search and Advanced Search?


Simple Search allows for keyword searching. You can limit a search to a particular phrase by putting the phrase in quotation marks (e.g. “Social Status”). You can also use AND, OR, NOT operators (e.g. cardinals AND baseball).

Advanced Search allows you to limit your search to Title, Author/Creator, or Call Number. You can also specify “contains” “starts with” or “is (exact).” Specific dates and material type can be selected to further refine your search.
