How do I restrict my search to material to a specific discipline (e.g Economics, Physics) using FindMore@NUSL?

Besides restricting to subject terms (which are usually more granular than disciplines) , FindMore also classifies almost all materials (books, journal articles etc) into 59 disciplines.

Examples of disciplines are Economics, Botany, Pharmacology, International Relations etc.

This can be useful if you find the search giving you articles from disciplines that are totally irrelvant to you.

Special search boxes that are automatically restricted to specific disciplines are placed on the respective subject guides. Here's an example for Sociology

Another way to do it is to use this sample search  , which will expose the discipline facet in the interface. You can then change to whatever disciplines and/or keywords you wish. 

Please note this is a OR function, so if you select Economics + Physics, it would give you items classed in either or both disciplines.

Additional note: Newspaper articles and some other content types are currently not classified into disciplines as such selecting a discipline will exclude them.
