Using the QuickSearch Advanced Search

If you click on one of the subject headings in the box on the left and find too many books to look through (as you will with "acting") you may want to use the QuickSearch Advanced Catalog Search to limit your results to more precisely what you are looking for.

To get to the QuickSearch Advanced Catalog Search screen, click on the blue button in the box on the right side of the screen.

Now, let's say you wanted to use the Advanced Search to search through all the books on the subject of "acting" for only the ones dealing with the "stage." On the Advanced Search Screen, you would type "acting" in the first search box and then change the menu in front of it to "Subject." In the second box you would type the word you want to add to your search, in this case the word "stage." You can leave the menu in front of this search box set for "Keyword." (If this search still brings up too many items, change the menu in front of the second search box to "Subject" as well.) Then you would click "Search" to run your search.
