Refining your browse list

On the left of your browse list you’ll find features to help you find what you want in that list.

  • Narrow your choices by choosing a more specific subject. In this pane you’ll see the same subject taxonomy as in the subject browse panel – but in more detail, so you can choose to explore more precisely.
  • Each topic shows you the number of books on that topic (in brackets.)
  • Click on the + signs to expand each branch of the taxonomy, the – signs to hide the sub-branches, and click on each term to choose it.
  • Enter a word of phrase in the Refine terms box to run a quick search just through the books or chapters you are browsing. 
  • Availability: your library may not have subscribed to all the books. Open the Availability widget by clicking the little triangle and then check the Show full text results only box to limit what you see to just what you have access rights to.
  • Refine by most recently published.
  • As with Search, refine by Specialty, Career stage, Series, and Date.
