Help: Quick search

The Quick Search box on every page allows you to perform a keyword search across all records and full text in The Gerritsen Collection:

  • Type what you want to look for in the box.
  • Click the Go button.
  • A Results page will appear listing the periodical articles and books that match your search terms.

If you want to restrict your quick search to books or periodicals select the appropriate radio button underneath the quick search box. The default option is for both books and peridocials to be searched.

To narrow the scope of your search you can join together your search terms using special sets of predefined words called operators. Boolean and proximity searching provides more information on how to use these operators.
