Using One Search

Using the library's search tool, One Search, to find journal articles, books, book chapters and much, much more.

Advanced search

The Advanced Search option in One Search enables you to be more specific with the parameters of your search.

You can combine searches to be more precise with some parts of your search, while still being broad with other parts of your search.

For example, a search in Any field contains for a keyword can be combined with a search for Author/Creator is (exact) to find any work written by that author which uses your keywords.

You can add as many lines as you need, but you may find more than three lines becomes too restrictive.

You can also narrow to specific material types, languages or year ranges within the Advance Search box.
