Q: How is Quicksearch different than Orbis/Morris?
Answered by: Jenn Nolte
Aside from colors and branding, Quicksearch is different from Orbis and Morris because it searches both these catalogs simultaneously, as well as searching our Articles+ service.
The part of Quickearch that searches Orbis and Morris is called Books+.
The search functionality is also a little different from a traditional catalog search, with an emphasis on keyword searching.

The Quicksearch interface, in the Books+ and Articles+ searches, uses facets to drill down into a topic/search instead of a more traditional advanced search function. Search terms used are shown at the top of your results as you select facets to include or exclude.
See the Quicksearch documentation site (web.library.yale.edu/quicksearch) for more information on searching- plus a few introductory videos!
