Deep Searching of eBooks with InfoGate
In addition to using Josiah for known items (author/title) and for LC Subject Heading searching, there are other ways to search deeply into some subscribed ebooks and many free ebooks: Google Book, Internet Archive, and Project Gutenberg searching and linking can be performed within these options.
- Enhanced searching of full text (chapters, indexes, and Table-of-Contents) -- use subject QuickSets and general QuickSet.
QuickSets are found at: http://sfx.brown.edu:8331/V?func=quick-1
Good for very specific searching, and discovering detailed portions of larger general works. Searches across aggregated full-text services (e.g. Early English Books, engineering handbooks, etc).
Not as good for general subject discovery ... see Josiah for controlled vocabulary and broad subject headings ... and to discover LC call number ranges for browsing the physical book stacks.
- Seamless federated searching of Josiah and fulltext ebooks
The QuickSets above offer one-stop searching of both Josiah and deep fulltext searching. This allows for both keywords within online texts and controlled subject headings within library subject catalogs. The less sophisticated search interface does not offer the best of either service, but it provides a good compromise for starting research. This will often lead researchers to more powerful native mode searching in various platforms.
