Custom Searching

In addition to the basic searching described above, staff users can perform more advanced searches using Custom Searching. To use custom searching, click the Custom Request Search arrow to the right of each search box. These custom queries can be saved as reports and reloaded later or shared with other staff or institutions.

Each of the Search boxes, Items, Courses, and Users, contains a Custom Search feature that allows you to narrow and conditionalize your search. You can also preview your parameters and save your search queries to reload or share with other staff users.
