Advanced Search Instructions
You can use the boolean operators and, or, or not in searching. Without these booleans,
our search engine will assume you're
anding the words together. The operators are case sensitive -- use lowercase only.
Evaluation takes place from left to right only, although you can use parentheses to force the order of
evaluation (see below).
retrieves files containing either the words "smilla" or "snow"
retrieves first the files that contain both the words "smilla" and "snow"; then among those the ones that do not contain the word
| smilla and snow not sense |
The only wildcard available is (*), however it can only be used at the end of a word. Usage at the beginning or in
the middle of the word will yield no results.
retrieves files which contain the word "librarian"
On the other hand:
retrieves "librarians", "librarianship", etc. along with "librarian".
Order of Evaluation
Expressions are always evaluated left to right:
retrieves files which contain "juliet" and "pac" but not "ophelia"
| juliet not ophelia and pac |
However it is always possible to force the order of evaluation by using parenthesis.
retrieves files with "juliet" and containing neither "ophelia" nor "pac".
| juliet not (ophelia and pac) |
