How To Use Credo Reference: Advanced Search

Advanced Search


Advantages of the Advanced Search

The Credo Advanced Search has many capabilities the Basic Search does not have.  You may specifically search all words, an exact phrase, with any of the words, and without certain words (those words must not be present.)  You can also choose to sort your results by relevance, publication date or length and specify to search only within the headings of the entries, not the full-text.

You may further limit your searching by subject or a specific title (out of over 600 reference books), particular publication date and entries that contain a specific feature such as images, audio, biographies, articles and maps.
