Search and access options

You can access the entire collection in one of several different ways:

SEARCH/ACCESS full-text articles usingDiscovery service
SEARCH/ACCESS journals/books usingWebsiteDiscovery service
ACCESS titles using complete A-Z lists:WebsiteBrowseWebsiteSearch

The discovery service matches on exact spelling.

- Words with alternate spellings should be searched using both spellings:

  • Anaesthesia / anesthesia
  • Paediatrics / pediatrics

- Alternatively, wildcards and truncation can be used:

  • An?esthesia - this will match both anaesthesia and anesthesia
  • P?ediatrics - this will match both paediatrics and pediatrics
  • Medic* - this will find any variation on the word medicine

Titles containing commonly used words should be restricted to title matching.

- Click in search box and select XXXX in Title (where XXXX = your search term)
- Append an index term to your search:

  • ti: is a title keyword search - for example: ti:miller's anesthesia
  • ti= is an exact title search - for example: ti=miller's anesthesia

- Using Boolean operators to refine your search:

  • AND, OR and NOT are supported - for example: anesthesia OR anaesthesia
  • Brackets () can also be used to create more complex searches - for example: (anesthesia OR anaesthesia) AND cardiac
