SearchWorks has supported searching for some call numbers for a while now; we've now enhanced this feature to give more accurate searching for LC, Dewey, and Media/Microtext call numbers. To do this, we've had to remove call numbers from the "everything" search, and have added a specific "Call number" search option to the Search pull-down.
To specify when you're searching by call number:
- Enter the call number in the search box (no quotes required)
- Click the arrow next to Search, and select "Call Number"
We will continue to work on integrating call number search into the "Everything" search, as well as the standard numbers field in Advanced Search.
Subject links and subject searches previously allowed terms to be found across multiple subject headings. For example, clicking on this subject link:
- Vocal music > Thematic catalogs.
would also find records with these separate headings:
- Haydn, Joseph, 1732-1809 > Thematic catalogs.
- Vocal music.
Now subject links (and a quoted subject phrase searches) will find the terms in order within in the same heading.
