Advanced Search allows you to create a more specific and targeted search to find more relevant results.
The downward arrow to the right of a word indicates that you can click to reveal menu options. You can build your search using the following advanced search fields and functionality:
Any field menu - to select which field you are searching e.g., Title, Author/creator or Subject.
Contains menu - to select whether you are running a keyword search (contains), an exact phrase (is (exact)), or results starting with your search terms (starts with).
Material Type - narrow your search to a particular material type e.g., books, journals or audio visual.
Publication Date - narrow your search by specifying a date range e.g., Last 2 years.
Boolean operators - these can be used between keywords and phrases in each search line, but can also be used between each line of your advanced search. For more information on using search operators go to Focus your search in StudyWISE.
Add a New Line - allows you to add up to 5 additional lines to the search.
You can combine search terms by selecting Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) from the drop-down menu.
