Using Filters to Focus Search

The left side bar of the search results page contains filters to help focus the search. 

Note: The "Free full text" filter does not include Rider University libraries resources. 

Show Additional Filters

The default list of filter categories does not include all options. Click on the link labeled "Show additional filters" to add categories to the list. Filters are available to focus your search results by article types, text availability, publication dates, species, languages, sex, subjects, journal categories, ages, and search fields.

Type of article, Species, Sex, and Ages are based on terms added by indexers. When these filters are selected they remove very recent articles that have not been indexed. Always look for the most recent search results before adding these filters.

Activated filters display on Search Result pages. Filters stay selected during  the search session, or until you change/clear them.
