Expert search in WorldCat indexes

The Expert Search screen is designed for experienced searchers who prefer to enter logical search strings.

Reference information on constructing a search is displayed at the bottom of the screen. A list of indexes and index labels is provided in a single drop-down menu. For example, to search for all resources related to coffee that are written by Elizabeth Alston, you can enter alston elizabeth and kw:coffee and select the Author index from the drop-down list. The author index will apply only to the unlabeled terms alston elizabeth.
