Once you've clicked "Search," you'll get a lot of results, and it's time to narrow down your results with different Filters. ECU Library Search allows you to filter your results in a number of ways, including:
By default, ECU Library Search searches Libraries worldwide, narrow your results to ECU materials only
Best for limiting to "Peer Reviewed" material for essays
For Books, Journal Articles, Music, and Musical Scores
When looking for material created, and released within a set period
As you select the check boxes next to a filter, you can see the number of results you will narrow down to the right of the option.
A Keyword search is great for a general search for a Title, or an Author, but what about searching for a specific piece? Thankfully, finding a piece like an Article or a Chapter in a collection is also possible by using a Keyword.
This is because books often have their full Contents listed in their catalogue entry, and a Keyword search will search the names of Articles and Chapters.
In the ECU Library search bar, type in the "Title of the chapter" and any additional details like the Author, if known.
For example, searching: "What Is an Author?" AND Foucault
Then Filtering to Edith Cowan University, and Book gets you a number of results which include this essay.
Finally, after selecting the Title, on the right you will see the access option and where the item is available, and scroll down to get a full list of the contents of the item.
