A BULS search retrieves records for many types of material: books/ebooks, book chapters, articles/peer-reviewed articles, audio/music, dissertations, film/video, images, etc.
Search results may be in the hundreds or thousands. Filters on the right eliminate unwanted results. Most useful filters are available online, peer-reviewed articles, material type, publication date, author/creator, record source (JSTOR, for example), and language.
Alternatively, search parameters can be pre-set using Advanced Search or the setup in the black band under the search box (all items, that contain my query words, anywhere in the record).
How to Use BU Library Search provides tutorial videos and search strategy instructions.
