Use discoverE to Refine Your Search Results: While searching the library catalog, it's likely that you'll find more than one item, and quite possible that you may end up with hundreds, if not thousands, of results. Thankfully, discoverE allows you to break down your search using facets -- specific aspects of a work that include title, date of publication, the author's name, and more. It's also very possible that you'll want to apply more than one facet to your search to narrow down your results. We've created a video that will show you how to do that.

Once you've entered a term in the box and clicked the Search button, discoverE will return your results, along with a list of facets at the left side of the page. You can add as many as you want to more accurately restrict your results to items you think will work best for your research. It's important to note that once you've started, you can still make changes to your search terms; each is listed over the results on the search page, and has an X by it that allows you to remove it. That prevents you from having to start over from the beginning if you think you've chosen a facet that's taking you down the wrong path.
We've been putting together a series of how-to videos for discoverE that we've created based on some of the questions we've received at the Robert W. Woodruff Library. We'll be publishing more in the next few days. If you have some feedback that you'd like to share with us, we encourage you to do so. Good luck with your research!
