You can narrow your search results by using the Format and Refine Your Search boxes that appears on the left-hand side of the screen.
The full-text limiter is available on the Advanced Search and search results screens in WorldCat Local, and is persistent when it is selected on those screens. When the full-text facet is selected, it is not persistent.
Note: If no full text is available, an error message is returned.
Because the full-text limiter automatically limits to full text the library holds, the full-text limiter overrides any scope that is not the level-one library. Applying the full-text limit or facet to a search usually results in a narrowing of a search.
To narrow your results to full text articles, click the check box, either on the left-hand side of the screen or under the Search box at the top of the screen.
Note: Some of these options are not available for all databases.
This information is automatically extracted from each record in your result set, and the first five values are automatically displayed in the box. Click Show more... to see more results.
Example: Searching Harry Potter:
The example search above retrieves 6,898 items that match the search terms.
Note: If you have more than one specific piece of information to use in your search, you may produce a smaller results set more quickly by using an Advanced search.
The number of items for each value is listed in parentheses. You can further narrow your results by selecting additional values from a different category in the Format and Refine Your Search boxes. For example:
reduces the result set to 93 books, published in 2002 with J K Rowling shown as author:
You can select from a category only once; for example, once you select a specific format (Book), the other formats no longer appear in the box.
Each time you select a value from the Format and Refine Your Search boxes, the resulting search results display adds that value to the Search results for... statement at the top of the screen. Each value (other than the current value) is a link that takes you back to that search level. You can climb back up toward your original result set by clicking on these links at the top of your results (or your browser's Back button).
You can select any link at any time. You do not have to backtrack in order.
