More about Filters

Selected Filters, found in the left column of the Results page, help to narrow and focus results. If you need a book immediately, limit to Library: Roger Williams University. In this example additional Filters chosen include Format: Print Books and Year: Last 10 Years. Using these filters reduced the number of results from over 7,000 to three.
