Advanced Search

Search options

At any moment, you can use the simple search, situated above the titles.

Select the field where you would like to search, on the pull-down menu: title, author or ISBN, or select “Full text” if you wish to search by keyword inside the document.

The searcher is not case sensitive and don't consider the accents. However, to search by ISBN, you have to write the number without dash.

The search results list will display in order of relevance, being able to refine your search, if necessary, by the options on the right-hand bar: publisher, subject, format, year, language and country.

For further information, please, consult our user guide.

You can access the advanced search, by clicking the “advanced search” button, next to the simple search bar.

 First, select the field where you want to search, on the pull-down menu: author, title, ISBN, ISSN, eISBN or full-text.

Secondly, you can add a second term or sentence to the search, and make a boolean search, by selecting:

  • AND: the results will contain both terms
  • OR: the results will contain any of both terms
  • NOT: the results will contain the first term, but not the second one

If necessary, you can add all the fields you consider opportune to make your search more specific.

Besides, we can filter the search by one or more of the following options:

  • Publication year
  • Subject
  • Publisher
