Using the Library Search

This guide includes information and instructions on using the library's new catalog.

Filtering Results

Because the One Search feature searches across everything accessible at Triton College Library, using filters can be really helpful for narrowing down your search results. 

  1. Use the One Search bar on the library home page to search for a title, keyword, or subject terms and click Search.
  2. If you are off campus sign in using your MyTriton portal username and password
  3. The filters are located on the left sidebar under areas like Availability, Resource Type, Subject, Location, etc.
    • Click the arrows next to each area to expand what filters are available
  4. Click an item in the list to turn on that filter (i.e. Available online under Availability)
  5. Filters that are turned on will appear in the Active filters area at the top of the left sidebar
  6. In the Active filters area, you can:
    • Turn off individual filters by clicking the x next to the filter's title
    • Lock individual filters by clicking the lock icon next that appears when you hover over it's title
    • Turn off all filters by clicking Reset filters
    • Lock all filters by clicking Remember all filters
  7. Remember that filters reset when you conduct a new search unless they are locked using the methods above.
