Use the filters on the left of the search results (on a mobile device there a button that looks like four squares that reveals the filters).
Selecting At the library will show you items that are available to borrow now.
You can filter by format (e.g. Book, eBooks, EAudios, DVD, etc.)
Filtering by Collection helps you narrow down what is currently available at your local branch
Choose Relevance to get search results closest to your search at the top of the list.
Choose Date to get the most recently published books at the top.
Title and author sort the search results alphabetically by those two parameters.
To explore a topic, you can use AND to include items that cover multiple areas. Use OR to include multiple terms. Use NOT to exclude results that might show up in a wider search that you know you are not interested in.
For example if you typed ‘kittens AND puppies’ into the search bar, the results would be items that included both kittens and puppies, not items that only included only kittens or only puppies.
Try using the Advanced Search feature, found just under the search bar. This is laid out like a visual boolean search builder. You can also then filter right there before you click Search.
