Using the Catalog Search feature


Using the Catalog Search feature

The Catalog Search feature appears at the very top of the left hand column which lists the table of contents to the Catalog.  You may use the catalog search to quickly find content throughout your catalog.  The search feature includes an option to limit search results based on location - allowing you to search only within desired areas of the catalog including Courses; Academic Programs; Schools, College and Departments; Policies and Other Non-Academic content; or the Entire Catalog, as well as being able to select the whole word/phrase checkbox to ensure it looks for an exact match.

The search results returned will be sorted based on location (area of the catalog) and, by default, will be limited to 5 results per page per section. These results may be sorted alphabetically or by rank and the user may choose which way they would prefer to view those results.

Each instance where a match is located will be highlighted within the results, and if you click on any of the links in the results you will be directed to the location of the catalog where the content can be found, with the match still highlighted within the page.

Further search options may be available by clicking on the “Advanced Search” link within the Persistent Search box above the navigation or by choosing to modify search options on the results page.

While using the advanced search feature, you may also choose to view a list of course prefixes to help refine your course search results.
