Nursing MSN Week (2014): Using the Guided Search

Using the Guided Search

If you click on one of the subject headings in the boxes above and find too many books to look through (as you will with "Fairy tales") you may want to use the Guided Search to limit your results to more precisely what you are looking for.

To get to the Guided Search from the Gumberg Library homepage, click on the link for DuCat.

This will take you to the Basic Search screen. On that screen, click on "Guided Search."

This will take you to the Guided Search screen.

Now, let's say you wanted to use the Guided Search to search through all the books on the subject of "Fairy tales" for only the ones dealing with women. On the Guided Search Screen, you could type "Fairy tales" in the search box labeled "subject," and in the box labeled "keyword" you could type "women." You might also want to type the operator "OR" followed by the word "woman" so that the search would find both singular and plural of that word.

Then you would click "Search" to run out search.
