Filters refine your search results by resource type, publication date, and subject. Using filters can help you narrow your search to the most relevant resources. You will find the OneSearch filter options on the left-hand side of the screen once you enter your search terms and click the Search button.
Once you select a filter it will appear at the top of the box under a heading called Active filters. If you want to apply these filters to your next search you will need to lock your selected filters. To do so, simply hover over the filter and click the lock icon that appears on the left-hand side of the filter.
There are several ways you can use filters to narrow your search.
OneSearch defaults to sort by Relevance, but you have the option to sort by Date-newest, Date-oldest, Author, or Title.
