Omni Search Tips

 

All books (print or ebook), can be found by searching Omni, the library’s new search tool.  A complete search guide for using Omni is available here.  

Enter your search words in the main search box.  You can put quotation marks around a phrase. Results are displayed using a relevancy ranking, but you can change this to display your results by newest date first.   Change the “Sort By” option to “Date - Newest” 

To limit your search results you can use the limiters on the left side of your search results screen. 

A few tips to filter your results: 

  • To limit your search to online, under “Availability” select the “Available Online” filter. 
  • You can limit these results further by selecting a “Resource Type”. For example if you are interested in an ebook, you can select the “books and ebooks” filter. 
  • To find print books available in the Education Library (Thunder Bay Campus) only, select “Thunder Bay Education Library” under the “Library Locations” filter
  • To find books available in the Education Library (Orillia Campus) only, select “Orillia Education Library” under the “Library Locations” filter


Locations are listed below each title and in alphabetical order - if there are multiple locations you should click on the Location line to display additional locations:
