The Advanced Search option in DiscoverEd allows you to be more controlled in your searching.
Click on the Advanced Search link next to the DiscoverEd search box to access the Advanced Search options.
In Advanced Search you can choose to search for items where your words only appear in certain fields in the item record including in the title, author/creator, ISBN, series and shelfmark. This can be helpful if the basic keyword search is bringing back too many results for your particular search terms.
You can also limit by date, language and material type in the Advanced Search.
Remember that once you have performed your search using Advanced Search you can still use the left-hand menu options (facets) to refine your search further.
