New Search Features Added to GIL

The interface for GIL has changed to include three new screens: “Quick Search,” “Keyword Search,” and “Exact Search.”

Quick Search allows a simple keyword search that does not require the use of the plus (+) sign; “and” searching is implied. This screen has prominent links to “Course Reserves” and “My GIL Account,” used to renew books online, view a patron record, and obtain the current GALILEO password.

Keyword Search allows for advanced searching by providing boxes for multiple terms.

Use the Exact Search to find known items such as author, title, and journal title.

Help with the new interface is available at the reference desk. GIL remains accessible at
