The repository offers two levels of search: Quick and Advanced. The advanced option includes more fields enabling a more precise search. Both search options are available from the homepage.
Quick Search - type in the any keywords, such as author, subject or title to do a quick search which will give you results from the whole repository.
Advanced Search - allows you to search specific fields and to narrow your search to departments or research centres. It also allows you to narrow the search to certain types of material, by year and to include only records where full text is available.
Google Custom Search - for a different emphasis on relevancy you could also try our customised Google search focussed solely on LSE Research Online content.
Help is available wherever you see the ? symbol. Just click on this symbol for assistance.
