For more information:
You can access Avery Index through two different vendors - each have their strengths and weaknesses.
When searching both databases you may notice that one or the other returns more results. This is due to the frequency of updating on the part of Proquest and Ebsco. They receive the exact same index data, and generally speaking the results should be the same.
Advanced Search: In advanced search you can search for articles that offer a particular feature (photos, plans, elevations, etc.), as well as limit your search to a certain document type or language. You can enter your keywords into a single search box separated by boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT, etc.), or separated to search specific field types (creator, author, subject, etc.) with different keywords.
