How to search GW material in Internet Archive
How to search across all of GW Libraries materials in Internet Archive
1. Go to https://archive.org/details/gwulibraries. This is the Internet Archive collection for GWU Libraries.
2. Locate the search box on the left. Enter your search term here. Also, see the two radio buttons?
3. If you select "Metadata (default)", Internet Archive will look for your search term only within the metadata of each item. What's included in the metadata? On each item page, the metadata is listed below the item. It includes things like Title, Creator, Description, and Date.
4. If you click the other radio button, "Full text of books", Internet Archive will look for your search term within the full text of written material that the computer can read (including typed materials but not handwritten materials, audio, video, or photographs). Note: If you run a full text search, the web page will change its design a little bit, but that's ok.
5. You can further refine the results by filtering specific metadata fields:

(Remember that if you run a full text search, the web page will change its design a little bit, but that's ok.)
