Searching for Resources

You can search for resources using two methods:

  1. Keyword Search: Type in key words in the box immediately below the main menu. The system will search resource subject headings and descriptions.
  2. Controlled Search: This is only available on the main repository page. You can search for resources by selecting one or more options from the various drop-down menus, in addition typing key words into the search box. By leaving the key word search box empty (click on the box to clear it), the system will list all topics from the chosen drop-down(s).
