By entering search terms into the search box (see sidebar) you can search metadata (see search options below) or full-text (default) or both. The results are displayed in lists of 10/page. You can sort the results by relevance, date of addition, author/organization, source type (e.g. e-publication, website, e-journal etc.), title, or year of publication. On the left-hand side you can refine for year of publication, region or country, or author.
In the search results, click on the title to directly access a publication or click on the short summary for additional bibliographic information.
= report broken link. Each search result looks like this:
Colour code: command, example, explanation
- “public health” use quotes to find a phrase rather than separate words
- poverty AND millennium finds both words. AND is the default operator, so poverty millennium gives the same result.
- poverty OR millennium finds either word
- poverty (alleviation OR reduction) use parantheses to prioritize part of your query
- title:"HIV and AIDS" finds e-publications, websites etc. with these words in the title
- keyword:"popular participation" finds items with these words or terms in the keywords. Find keywords by conducting general searches first and checking in the results.
- region:"Africa south of Sahara" finds results with this country or regional name in the keywords
- organize* is interpreted as organize, organizer, organizing, or organization etc.
Avoid empty spaces in field searches (title:, keyword: etc.). Always use lowercase for field labels in your query. You can combine different types of searching. For more options, go to Advanced search options.
