Smart search - limitations

• You can enter up to a maximum of ten terms per searchable bibliographic data (20 terms in total).

• Left truncation is not supported, nor is truncation within a word.

• Apostrophes, hyphens and umlauts are not recognised.

• In the case of documents published in other alphabets (Cyrillic, Greek, Japanese, etc.), names are not searchable.

• Quotation marks should be used:

  • for searching within ranges if the separator is a white space (blank)

    example : "2000 2002"

  • if you want to search for a phrase

    example: "bicycle electric motor"

  • if there is a special character in a word () which should be treated as a normal character

    example : "2000:2002"
