Q: What fields are searched in Quicksearch?
Answered by: Jenn Nolte

Quicksearch searches four resources: Orbis (Yale University Library catalog for books and other material), Morris (Lillian Goldman Law Library catalog for books and other material), Articles+ (scholarly and peer reviewed journal articles), and Digital Collections (digitized images and archival documents in the Yale University Library).

Basic keyword searches are run against several fields in Orbis and Morris in the Books+ search. For detailed information about the MARC fields searched in the Books+ (Orbis and Morris) part of Quicksearch, visit web.library.yale.edu/cataloging/quicksearch/indexes

In Articles+, articles are indexed at varying levels, from brief, to abstract, to full text.  The level of indexing varies by publisher and content platform.

In Digital Collections, images and documents are indexed at the item level. The level of indexing varies according to the document type and repository.
