Catalog search tips

  • Use Boolean search operators (NOT, OR, "", * etc.) for more controlled searches.
  • Use multiple search terms for one concept, for example: cars, auto, automobile, vehicle.
  • To limit results to records with digital content, include the term "digitized" in your search.
  • Browse an expandable list of collections by going to Browse > Hierarchical Browse on either the Suffolk University Records page or the Special Collections page.
