BenSearch offers may opportunities to manage and refine your searching.
For example, the moment you begin to enter words into the search box, you have the option to limit your search to books, articles, etc.
Let's begin to explore the various ways you can refine your search results from the results screen.
Sort defaults to display the most relevant items first, but you may wish to see the newest materials first, or sort the results by author or title. The choice is yours!
You may wish to limit your search to a particular time frame.
If you are unable to access physical library materials (print books, DVDs, etc.), you may wish to limit your search to items available online.
Select (or eliminate) the types of resources you choose to use in your research. The number of resources found in each category is listed in parenthesis.
You also have the option to deselect certain categories:
Review the list of subjects to further refine your search.
You can also exclude subjects to further narrow your search.
You can limit your search by language.
Every time you set a filter, Search It will display the filter at the top of the results set.
You can remove the filter by clicking the X in the tile for that search filter. When you do this, your results will immediately update.
Many of these refinements can also be made when you compose your strategy in the Advanced Search function.
