Browsing Books and Periodicals


Click on the Browse Books or Browse Periodicals links to see an A to Z listing of titles. 


Note you can also browse the books using Gerritsen Index Terms or Library of Congress Subject Terms.


Here are links to these pages:



Users can use the Quick Search at the top of the interface, or use the link in the left menu to take advantage of more nuanced search options. 


Note the radio buttons at the top allow users to search all documents, or books only or periodical articles. 



To the right of many of the search boxes are links that allow users to select from a list of options including author, publisher, language, and two subject indexes. 



Finally, at the bottom, users can select periodical titles, articles type, and results options.


Search Results




The Search Results page reminds users of terms searched, and allow modifying the search, or saving the search strategy to My Archive (if logged in). 



Users can sort results using relevance or date, and filter by all, books, or periodicals. 



From the list of titles, users can read the notation of content and either click to see the indexing or the full text. 



From the full citation, users can add the item to a list or save, print, download or email the citation.


Above those options is the link to the Durable URL for the record.


At the bottom of the indexing information, the chapters in the book are broken out to facilitate easy access. 


Note:  Periodicals will have a link to the article, and to the periodical issue and record.
