Running an Advanced Search

Running an advanced search gives you better control over the results returned. You can search in a number of different fields at the same time, and even specify terms you don't want to search on.

NOTE: Because RACER is searching catalogues, you should search for the title of the journal, rather than the title of the article. When you get to the request form you will be able to enter specific volume and issue information.
