LLCC Library Search & Discover

This guide will demonstrate how to use the library's discovery interface, LLCC Library Search & Discover, as well as I-Share, which uses the same platform.

Modifying your Search Results

Once you've conducted your search, you'll be taken to your results page.  Here you'll see a list of items and some relevant details about them, including their titles, formats, and availability (circled in red below).  These results are automatically ordered by relevance (circled in green below), but you can change this to sort by title, author, or date.

You can also tweak your results by using several different facets (circled in gold below), including:

  • Availability: limit your search to only items owned by LLCC Library or those that are available online
  • Subject: narrow your search to only include items under various subject classifications, such as History or United States
  • Author/Creator
  • Location: limit your search to various locations within LLCC Library
  • Library
  • Institution: only view items available at specific I-Share institutions across Illinois
  • Resource Type: limit your search to specific types of materials, such as books, journals, or videos
  • Creation Date: define a range of years to limit your results to materials created during a specific time period
  • Language
