Easy Search

The Easy Search is the simplest way to search the indexed full-text and full bibliographic records available in ETDEWEB with various sort options. Type a search term (or search phrase in double quotes), then choose the sort options by selecting your preference. Select the "Search" button to start the search. For additional information and tips, select Help.


Here in the easy search window, we're going to search on the terms "biofuels" or "biodiesel." This is a Boolean search that will pick up any records where either one of these words appears in the title, abstract, key words, or the full text. A side note about Boolean searching: if we wanted both of these words to appear in a given record, rather than either word, we would search on "biofuels and biodiesel" rather than "biofuels or biodiesel."
