Prefilter search added to Library Search – find eBooks and articles even faster!

Prefilter search has been added to Library Search, which is the catalog/discovery system for the CU Anschutz Strauss Library. Prefilter allows you to (optionally) specify what type of resource you are searching for, before you search on any keywords. For example, if you are looking for an eBook (or electronic textbook) on Surgery you would select the eBooks prefilter and enter the term, “surgery”.
