Searching Tips
There are a variety of options available from the Advanced Search page that enable you to perform very specific searches.  For example, to find all Law libraries in Colorado, in the Library Type section, scroll down and click on "Law."  You may also select the "Air Force/Law," "Army/Law," and "Navy/Law" Library Types by holding down the Ctrl key (the Apple key on Macintosh) as you click on the various Library Types.

Then in the State or Province list, scroll down and click on Colorado. Then go to the bottom of the page and click the Submit Search button. You will then be presented with a Search Results page listing the names of 14 libraries.  Complete information for each library may be viewed by clicking on the library name. Or, you may choose to download these library records to a comma-separated values (.CSV) file, which can be opened by - or imported into - most spreadsheet (e.g., Microsoft Excel) or database (e.g. Microsoft Access) programs.

Multiple selections may be also made, as described above, for the State or Province, Job Title/Function, and Automation Systems fields. Ranges, and full-text searches may also be designated in a number of other fields in the Advanced Search page.

Downloading Tips
From the Search Results page, click on the Save/Download button.  A Download Options page will display which lists all of the fields that are available to download. You can click on the Check All button to request that all the fields be included in your download, or you can pick and choose the fields you want.

The practical upper limit for downloading is about 1,000 unique records at a time.  When downloading larger search sets, it is recommended that you create smaller sets via a number of refined searches, and subsequently combine the resulting downloaded files in your spreadsheet or database program.

Note that if you opt to download fields in the "Staff" section, the resulting .CSV file will contain one row for each personnel record listed at each library.  If you download a set of 300 records, your resulting set (.CSV file) could easily contain 600 rows, if an average of two personnel records per library is assumed. It could be even more.

The number of rows in the .CSV file does not count against your download limit, however - only the number of "unique" library records. So for the example here, even though you may have 600 "records," or rows in the .CSV file, your download quota would only be incremented by the 300 unique library records you chose to download.
