How to limit a search to a scope

Prior to completing a basic or advanced search, you can choose which collection to search to receive optimal results:

  • Western & Affiliate Libraries: searches all of the collections at Western Libraries, Brescia University College, Huron University College, King's University College, and St. Peter's Seminary Libraries.
     
  • Western & Affiliate Libraries + Omni Libraries: searches all of the collections at Western Libraries, Brescia University College, Huron University College, King's University College, and St. Peter's Seminary Libraries AND the collections at 15 other Ontario academic institutions with nearly 23.5 million resources available.

How to use facets

After a basic or advanced search has been completed, facets (found on the left side of the search results) allow you to limit your search results by resource type, location, date, language, genre or geography. 

Selecting a facet will remove all other results from the results list.
