"Advanced Search" is the default search mode and is what you will see when you first sign in to the catalog.
Advanced Search gives you the option of combining terms from multiple fields using search operators AND, OR or NOT. Searching for multiple fielded terms simultaneously is an advanced technique that can help focus your search.
