Online Catalog Tutorials - Basic Searching



Catalog Options

The first option is the "Advanced Search." Much of the time, you will be able to find what you need using the Basic Search, but sometimes you will need to do some refining or "tweaking" of your searches. That is when you will want to use the Advanced Search. Using the Advanced Search screen is covered in the Advanced Searching Tutorial.
