Enables to search each word in Authors, Titles, Publication Data, Notes and Subject terms. Keyword search also helps you to find records which lack subject terms, or carry out adjacency search. Keywords can be truncated and combined with operators (AND, OR, AND NOT, NEAR). You can also search for signs, except colon (:) and equal sign (=) which are used only to specify search fields.
Enclose your search terms in quotation marks if you want to search a multi-word expression (phrase).
Without quotation marks, the system automatically adds the operator AND.
If this search fails to give results, the system repeats the search with the operator OR
Words may be truncated using a question mark or an asterisk:
question mark (?) truncates one letter from the end or middle of the word
asterisk (*) truncates several letters from the end or middle of the word
Search term can be truncated with question mark or asterisk if at least two first letters of the word have been entered
Search terms can be combined with operators:
AND - the record must contain all these words
OR - - the record must contain at least one of these words
NOT - the record must not contain the word(s) following the operator
Use parentheses to group search terms.
Specify the search fields with abbreviations (without blank space after colon):
a:Authors, Compilers, Translators, Performers, etc.
