In Quicksearch Books+ Advanced Search, highlight Location of collection (Lewis Walpole Library) before you enter search terms. You can also set limits by Format to select Books, Archives and Manuscripts, Images, etc. and Date(s).
Search in Books+, then refine after you search to limit to Location: Lewis Walpole Library. You can also then limit to Format: Images, Books, Manuscripts, or whatever you need. Click or tap on the + signs after other facets to see further options for limiting your search.
