Search Limits allow you to refine your results using specific conditions. Try search limits at Maly Library's Advanced Search page.
You can specify your searches by instructing the catalog to only search certain fields within a record. There are many options, some of which we explore in-depth. The most common searches are by keyword, title, author, and subject. To see a complete list of search types that can be helpful in research, click on the More Options tab on the Maly Library catalog search page.
Limiting by Availability
Choose to only view results that are currently available in the library. Items that are currently checked out will not appear in your results.
Limiting by Date
Create a "before" year, an "after" year, or a range of years to return results published before, after, or within the years specified.
Limiting by Format
Specify what format of material you want to access. Formats include sound or video recordings, as well as electronic resources such as CD-ROMs or e-books.
Limiting by Form
Specify whether you are interested in fiction or non-fiction genres, as well as different levels of government publications (local, state, federal).
Limiting by Language
Specify in which language you want your results. Only one language can be specified at a time.
