Search for specified fields/indices
The default index for a search is "All words". If all boxes have been ticked all types of records will be searched including deprecated records. If one or more boxes should be deactivated only the chosen group(s) will be searched excluding deprecated records.
In order to limit your search to particular fields/indices you can use the following pattern:
Index=search term (case insensitive)
Only organisations located in Munich will be selected.
Note: search terms containing blanks or a diagonal slash must be marked with double quotes in order to avoid the search being conducted for separated parts:
The following fields/indices can be used for queries:
You can combine search terms by using the operators "AND", "OR" and "NOT". ["AND" is used as default operator.]
nam=institut AND ort=münchen
Displays all organisations with names containing the word "Institut" and are situated in München (Munich).
ort=münchen AND (nam=institut OR nam=universität)
Displays all organisations with names containing either the word "Institut" or "Universität" and are situated in München (Munich).
ort=münchen AND nam=institut NOT nam=universität
Displays all organisations with names containing the word "Institut" and not the word "Universität" and are situated in München (Munich).
By default, search terms are searched only as whole words. To search parts of words, you must truncate the search terms with a star ('*').
Displays all organisations with an ISIL starting with DE-1, e.g. DE-1, DE-1a, DE-11, DE-12, ... DE-100, DE-101 etc.
Displays the organisation bearing ISIL DE-1.
If a search returns several results these can be sorted according to different criteria. By default the results are sorted by ascending ISIL. This can be switched to descending ISIL, place (ascending/descending), interlibrary loan region (ascending/descending) and creation date of record (newest first). Please note that each new search will automatically switch to the default (ISIL ascending).
