Enterprise advanced search

Enterprise allows you to search across the book, journal, archive and object collections of the University Library, Special Collections and Museum of English Rural Life (MERL).

It works by allowing you to narrow your results using the limiting options on the left of the screen.

Advanced search in Enterprise

If you wish to do a more controlled search of the data you can use the Advanced search option on the right of the search box. This allows you to search for...

  • items containing all the words you enter
  • phrases (you can also do this is in the main search box by using quotation marks eg "organic farming")
  • specify words you wish to be excluded from your search
  • words in titles
  • authors
  • words in subject headings

You can also apply limits to your search, including:

  • Format eg maps, DVDs. CD-ROMs
  • Language
  • Library

Advanced searching of the source catalogues

The data included in Enterprise is selectively extracted from two catalogues - ADlib and Unicorn. More  precise searching is possible by searching the individual catalogues directly by following the links below. The source catalogues also hold more detailed information about the items, especially those held in Special Collections.
