Publication Year

You can also search the catalogue for items by their publication date.

  • If, for example, you want to search for everything published between 1500 and 1700, select the Books & Journals tab and type:

y:[1500-1700]

  • If you want to search for items published on a specific year (e.g. 1600), select the Books & Journals search and type:

y:[1600-1600]


It is important not to have any spaces in your search string.

If you want to search for a particular subject and limit your search by publication year, you can do that in Advanced Search
