Searching The Collection: Advanced Keyword Searching
If a simple keyword search across all collections yields too vague or too many results, you can narrow down the results by using the “Advanced Search Options” link under the Search All Collections search box at the top right hand corner of the screen.
The Advanced Search Options provides four specific ways to search all the digital collections.
It also allows you to select or exclude individual collections from the search. At the bottom of each search page, the different collections are listed. Simply check the box(es) of the collection(s) you wish to search. This will eliminate hits from other collections.
