FindMore@NUSL searches through millions of results and has such tends to result in a far better result set than the catalogue or even traditional library databases.
To reduce the number of results you can try the following
- Enter more than one or two search terms, because FindMore@NUSL searches through millions of results and matches against full-text of many items, you can get away with entering 3 or more search terms and still get reasonable amount of results. For example instead of "neural networks" try instead "neural networks financial markets"
- Do an advanced search “With these words in title” to force the words you search for to appear in the title only
- Add quotes to focus a phrase search so words are next to each other
- Use the facets on the left, such as content type, subject terms to refine the results
- Use a discipline scoped search from the library subject guides to restrict searches to content one of 59 disciplines including engineering, medicine , music etc.
