Using these options narrows your search results and only retrieves items that are within that subject area:

  • Subject (general)

  • Subject Thesaurus

  • Subject Major heading.


Here are a few examples:

Subject Thesaurus
If I search for 'heart attack,' then narrow my results to the Subject Thesaurus term 'MYOCARDIAL infarction,' it would narrow my results to only those that contain MYOCARDIAL infarction in the Subject Thesaurus.

The equivalent search would look like: heart attack AND ZE "MYOCARDIAL infarction." ZE is the field code to search the Subject Thesaurus.


Subject (general)
Search for money.
Narrow by Subject: Monetary policy
The search result would be: money AND DE "Monetary policy"
DE is a search code that tells Quick Search to look for the exact phrase in subject headings and author-supplied keywords describing an article.
