Search and Access

How to Search

The search box is located in the upper left part of the repository home page. To see Advanced Search options, follow the Advanced Search link directly to the right of the main search box.

Default search in the LDR is by full-text keyword, so the search engine will look for the terms across metadata (Title, Author, Description, etc.) and in the full text of resources in the LDR.

Search results are sorted by Relevance by default. To sort by Issue Date or Data Added, click on the Sort by… dropdown menu in the upper right part of the search results page and make your selection.
