Searching: Choosing an Approach

The method you use for searching will depend on your own search style and preferences.

If you like to start with a more general search and then filter your results to get to specifics, use Basic Search or Guided Search. By default, these methods search simultaneously within the descriptive item records and, when available, the full text of items.

If you prefer to target your search with as much precision as possible, use Advanced Search or Proximity Search. You will still be able to filter your results. In these methods, you can target your search to specific parts of the descriptive item records, and/or to the full text of items.
