Search tips for ISR Technical Reports on DRUM
—Although the DRUM interface does not mention this, it is important to use Boolean search terms in both the search and advance search windows. Learn about Boolean search terms.
—Note that the searches do not return results in any particular order, not alphabetical, not relevance, not recency. Very general searches will produce a large number of results which you will have to wade through. [For those accustomed to Google, this is important to note.]
—The same author may have multiple listings, depending whether full first and/or middle names or combinations of initials were used as identifiers. It is best to use the "browse/authors" feature on the left menu bar to call up all possible papers by an author.
—The advanced search feature allows for a more powerful and specific search. Note that if you want to search only the ISR Technical Reports collection, you will need to scroll down the menu to "Institute for Systems Research" from the "All of DRUM" default.
—It may be fruitful to search the general DRUM site and not just the ISR Technical Reports collection. In addition to MS and PhD theses catalogued by the legacy ISR Technical Reports system (1985-2007) DRUM also contains theses that never were entered into our system. Also, some ISR faculty have catalogued their work under other departments and units rather than ISR.
