Welcome to the forums!

Lauri Saarni:

Is it possible to limit search result to publication year or year range?

Yes you can!

One way to do it would be to create a collection of your resources based on publication date, and then search within that collection.

1. Create a Collection - check this page on the wiki if you re not sure how to do it, and see the examples using pubdate - this will filter your resources for inclusion in that collection based on publication date.

2. The, use that collection in your Search. Look on this page under "Limiting Search to part of your library" if you don't know how to do this.

Hi Lauri

Lauri Saarni:

A variant on Don's excellent answer is you can create the collection "on demand"

In the search windows "Resources" drop down entry the "pubdate" you want and you will get an option to select that filtered list - in this case resources published in 2013

this is then  used for a search as below

Learned something new today - thanks!

And Pubdate: can even take a range e.g. Pubdate:>1970

Thanks!
