How do I perform an advanced search at your catalog?

You can access the advanced search, by clicking the “advanced search” button, next to the simple search bar.

 First, select the field where you want to search, on the pull-down menu: author, title, ISBN, ISSN, eISBN or full-text.

Secondly, you can add a second term or sentence to the search, and make a boolean search, by selecting:

  • AND: the results will contain both terms
  • OR: the results will contain any of both terms
  • NOT: the results will contain the first term, but not the second one

If necessary, you can add all the fields you consider opportune to make your search more specific.

Besides, we can filter the search by one or more of the following options:

  • Item type: ebook or ejournal
  • Publication year
  • Subject
  • Publisher
  • For further information, please, consult our user guide.

 

How can I do a simple search in your catalog?

At any moment, you can use the simple search, situated above the titles.

Select the field where you would like to search, on the pull-down menu: title, author or ISBN, or select “All” if you wish to search by keyword in any field.

The searcher is not case sensitive and don’t consider the accents. However, to search by ISBN, you have to write the number without dash.

The search results list will display in order of relevance, being able to refine your search, if necessary, by the options on the right-hand bar: publisher, subject, format, year, language and country.

For further information, please, consult our user guide.

Is it possible to browse the catalog?

Yes, you have several options to discover our ebooks and ejournals catalog.

At the left-hand bar, you will find four menus in blue colour: ebooks, ejournals, ecollections and publishers.

Clicking on the first three, a subject chart will be displayed.

Last option shows a list of all the publishers that are part of our database, so you can choose one of them to see all the titles.

On the other hand, at the top bar, at the right of Digitalia Hispánica logos, you can find three direct accesses: ecollections, ebooks and ejournals, where you can browse both by publisher or subject.

For further information, please, consult our user guide.

What are the ecollections?
