Mirlyn: Search Home

Search History

We’re still working on Search History. We hope to have it available soon. Once it’s here, it will provide a list of your recent searches and allow you to revisit them within a browser session.

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"

Boolean Searching

Use AND, OR, and NOT between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery NOT procedures will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery but not about surgery procedures. Boolean terms must be in uppercase

Plus (+) and Minus (-) Operators

Use '+' (plus) immediately before a word to make that word required -- items must contain that word in order to match your search. Use '-' (minus) immediately before a word to exclude that word -- items must not contain that word in order to match your search. +cat -dog would match all items that contain the word cat but not the word dog.

Search only (no full text)

There are some items in Mirlyn that have a status of "Search only (no full text)." These are items that have been digitized, but due to copyright restrictions, are not actually viewable. The contents of these items are searchable within the HathiTrust Digital Library interface. This ability to search within materials may be useful to help you determine whether a volume is relevant to your needs/interests so you can decide whether to obtain a physical copy.
