How Filters are applied in Serial Holdings Search

 

When searching by title using a term that does not identify a unique title, the initial Title results screen displays a list of serials which match the bibliographic information input.  Filters are applied only after a single serial is chosen.  If searching by ISSN, NLM UI or title words that retrieve a unique bibliographic title, the search returns that individual bibliographic record and the holdings matching the selected filters.

 

The Filters on the Serial Holdings Update/View Search page are "AND’d" together in searches, with the exception of the My Library filter which is always "OR’d" with all other filters. The search page filters are also "AND’d" when combined in a search with Additional Filters.

 

For example:

 

If your library groups are FreeShare and AMEDD and you would like to see any holdings from FreeShare, AMEDD, or AMHL, you would NOT select My Library Groups on the Update/View Search page; instead, you would select FreeShare, AMEDD, and AMHL from the Library Group section of the Serial Holdings Filters page.

 

If your state is Maryland and you would like to see any holdings from Maryland or Virginia, you would NOT select My State on the Update/View Search page; instead, you would select Maryland and Virginia from the Location section of the Additional Filters page.

 

If you select My Library Groups from the search page filters and “Maryland” from the Additional Filters page, then the search returns only libraries in Maryland that are in your library groups that report owning the title.
