Quick Search

The Quick Search box displayed in the Webtop OPAC toolbar allows you to perform a new search without using the Search page. By default, the Quick Search searches most fields in the Catalogue record for the value that you enter in the search box. To perform a Quick Search, specify a value in the text box and click the Go button. Quick Search queries can contain all Collections Server wildcard characters, ranges, and term lists. The catalogue displays the result of the search in a new Search Results page.

If searching multiple fields, use the & between your search terms. More examples are listed on the Home page.
