Library Search: Advanced

Searching a university library catalogue can be overwhelming, as sometimes there can be so many results to sift through! This session shows you how to search so your results are more specific to the topics you are researching. You will also learn how to save your searches and pin your favourites to come back to. You will also be shown additional features of Library Search that will help you when you look for information to use in your assignments.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • understand how to narrow and broaden your Library Search results using AND, OR and NOT;
  • pin your favourites
  • save searches
