Search results can be filtered by community. Results can also be filtered using the facets: Author, Subject, Date issued, Type, and items that have files.
Search results can be sorted by clicking the cog icon above the results list. The default sort order is relevance. Alternatives include Title and Issue date, and they can be ordered in ascending or descending order.
You can also increase or decrease the number of results displayed on the page.
The boolean operators AND, OR and NOT may be used to broaden or narrow a search:
Enclosing a search phrase withing quotation marks will return only results containing that phrase.
If you know the name of the metadata field you wish to search, you may limit search to just that field by typing the field name, a colon, and the search term. For example, to search for items authored by Hans Bethe, search dc.contributor.author:Bethe. Some common metadata fields:
IUPUI ScholarWorks can be browsed by communities and collections, issue date, author, title, subject, or type.
Communities and sub-communities provide the hierarchical structure for collections, with collections containing items (content). You can browse the hierarchy by selecting "Communities & collections" under the Browse menu. Expand communities and sub-communities by clicking the "+" sign, if one is displayed.
You may also browse the entire repository by issue date, author, title, subject, or type. Once you have chosen a facet to browse by, you can start to narrow results by jumping to a particular year (for issue date), jumping to a point in the index (for author, title, or subject), or by selecting a particular type.
These browse-by options are also available from the page of individual communities, sub-communities, and collections.
