SOLO - Advanced searching (Toolkit Activity)

IT Learning Centre Skills toolkit penknife icon

SOLO (Search Oxford Libraries Online) is the principal search and discovery tool for Oxford Libraries. It searches our electronic collections as well as the printed collections of the Bodleian Libraries and many College and other libraries associated with the University of Oxford, the ORA and the Bodleian's Allegro catalogues.


This task will give you a flavour of how you might use SOLO to search for resources that may be used in your research. You can try this task on your own, although it was designed to be done in a classroom with a teacher to support you. Choose the instructions most relevant to your subject area.

For this task, you will need web browser software such as Mozilla Firefox or Edge installed on your computer. Talk to your IT support person about this.
