Search Syntax

  • Searches are case-sensitive.
  • To search for a record by Record ID, enter id: followed by the ID number. Do not leave space between id: and the number. For example, id:D01541.
  • The asterisk (*) can be used to allow for a partial match. For example, the search string ph* will match all words beginning with "ph" (Phan, Phann, Phim, Phak, etc.). Be sure to type your query in lower case when using this feature.
  • Use a + to indicate that a term must appear. For example, execution +witness will locate records containing the word "witness"; if the record also contains the word "execution", it will be ranked higher in the results.
  • Use a - to indicate that a term must not appear: Pol -Pot will find occurences of the name Pol in records that do not contain the name Pot.
  • To exclude results from one or more of the databases, enter the following: -type:cbib [to exclude CBIB] -type:cbio [CBIO] -type:cts [CTS]
  • Use quotes around a name or phrase that must appear exactly as entered: "Pol Pot"
  • These criteria can be combined, e.g., +Pol -"Pol Pot" will return records containing the name Pol but not the exact text "Pol Pot".
  • The search engine supports a wide range of options. See the product homepage for further details.
