Refine your results

You can refine your search from the options on the left of your search results under the Refine by heading.

These will give you different options to limit your search results, like Availability, Format, Location and more.

After you have selected some of those options to refine your search, they will appear at the top left side of the screen under ​Current Refinements​. ​To remove them, simply click on the X​ button to the right of it.

Under the Refine by options there will be the Related Searches heading, where you will find Related topics, a list of topics related to your search, and Additional Suggestions to your search.


  • You can search for an author in any of the search tabs, just type the author’s name in the search box and click Go.

If you are searching for books you can do either a Keyword or Author search and select Author under Found In (Books) ​.

You don’t have that option when you are searching for articles so it will be helpful if you knew both the name and surname of the author.

Limit your results using the options on the left.
