Searching SOLO for Books and E-Books

There are a number of different options for searching for books and e-books in SOLO.

The standard search on the SOLO home page is sufficient for nearly all SOLO searches. However, those wishing to search by publication date, publisher or place of publication and those wishing to specify a date range or language for their search may find the Advanced Search useful.  In addition, SOLO has a facility for browsing A-Z indexes of authors, titles and subjects.
