Tips for Searching

GENERAL SEARCH METHODS

KEYWORD SEARCH

The Keyword Search button allows you to perform a general search across multiple fields for all records in the online catalog; including titles, authors, and subjects. For example, if you are interested in any items we may have for olberg, just type olberg in the field, and all the records which include the word olberg ANYWHERE in the record will be listed.

ADVANCED SEARCH

The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category or use multiple categories to further narrow down your search. For example, if you want to know if we have an American Lutheran Church (ALC) microfilm from Koshkonong, you can type ALC in the Title field and then type Koshkonong in the Description of Content field.
