Searches the Toronto Public Library catalogue
Searches the Toronto Public Library catalogue for books and media. When called without switches, it executes a simple keyword search on the whole catalogue. But I've also tried to include all the options currently available from the advanced search page.
These are the available search parameters:
-au author name
-su subject word(s)
-ser series words
-per periodical title
-lib library abbreviation, usually the first letter
each word in the branch name, CAPITALIZED.
-lan language. MUST BE WRITTEN IN CAPITALS.
-format item format. You have to know the code name for
a format to search this way.
-year year of publication
-age approximate age category. again, you need to know
the category codes.
The search parameters work in a perfectly predictable way, but the limiting parameters are very sensitive -- to use them, you should look carefully at the results of a normal search. I haven't had time to document them yet.
