There are several ways to search for book attention in Explorer for Institutions. You can search by unique identifier, author, or by book DOI prefix. 


Searching by a single unique identifier


Explorer for Institutions now lets you search by ISBN. Paste your ISBN in the search bar and you will be given the option to search by ISBN. You can also search for a books PMID, DOI, or any other identifier this way. 




Searching by multiple identifiers


To search for multiple book identifiers you will need to use the Advanced Search.  Click the words that say "Advanced Search" below the search bar. Once the pop-up opens, click on "Search by scholarly identifiers". Then paste in all the identifiers you'd like to search with. 




Once you've inputted your identifiers, click Save. This should bring you back to the Advanced Search. From there click "Search"


Search by author


If you know an author within your institution has published a book, you can find them within the Explorer by clicking "My Institution" and searching for their name.




Search by DOI prefix


Some publishers attached DOIs to their books along with ISBN/eISBN. You can then search by the publisher's unique book DOI prefix within the "Advanced Search". 


For example, if you are searching for Routledge Handbooks, you can use their DOI prefix 10.4324.




Searching by publisher


Within the Explorer you can also search by publisher. In "Advanced Search" type in a publishing house name in the box that says "Publisher Name". To make sure you only get Book and Chapter content select "Books" and "Book Chapters" and then click "Search".
