Searching Subfield K
It can be helpful to search Subfield K values to narrow searches in the BISON catalog to specific named collections within Law Special Collections or specific named types of materials within the Koren AV Center.
In the staff gui: Subfield K can be searched as an index in Base 60.
In the public catalog: Subfield K values can be searched within "Advanced Search." Subfield K value should be entered in "All fields" and the appropriate Sublibrary or Collection should be selected under "Location."
Example: to search for Microform materials in Koren AV, type "MicFiche" in All Fields box and select "Law Koren AV Center" from Location menu.
Alternately -- and when you wish to search within a collection rather than sublibrary -- use Expert Search with command language "wsl=[sublibrary_code]" for sublibrary or "wcl=[collection_code]" for collection and "wrd=[subfield_k_value]"
Or you may simply use "Expert Search" with common command language search within textual elements of all call numbers, wck. "wck=[subfield_k_value]"
A list of sublibrary and collection codes is available in the University Libraries help document Expert Search Codes & Examples
