1. General fields

The search mechanism is case sensitive.

Any character string may be typed in the search fields. The Libera search mechanism finds all records with this character string in any part of the field.

The '^' sign in front of the searched word means that you search it at the beginning of the field text.

The '$' sign at the end of the searched word means that you search it at the end of the field text.

Any fields, which are not to be used, are to remain empty.


1.1. Wildcard characters

%

You may substitute any multi-character string, including zeros, with a '%' sign.

    Example. K%ski (in the Author field).

    All records incorporating the character "K" and (eventually) followed by the string "ski" are filtered out. Usually, this will be a list of authors beginning with "K" and ending in "-ski". However, only "Kski" is also possible.

_ (Underscore)

You may substitute any single character in the search string with the "_" underscore sign.

This option is very useful for substituting any special characters.

    Example. Tr_i__e (in the Title field)

    We get "Tržišče", but also "Treibve(rzierte)".

[]

You may substitute any single character within the specified range or set of characters.

    Examples:

    [a-c] a or b or c

    [Aa] A or a

    [a-cgz] a or b or c or g or z


2. Logical operators: And, Or, Not

The searched words may be combined with the help of logical operators. There are command buttons for their input at every input field.

3. The Keywords Field

Keywords should be chosen with the help of a pull-down menu. You have to place them in the search query field with the "Insert" command button. Use the "Reset" button if you make a mistake. But be careful because this action deletes the characters in other input fields too!

Also the searched keywords may be combined with the help of logical operators.

Keywords with an asterisk are not in use anymore and they refer only to the oldest records.

4. Search results order

Search results may be arranged according to any one of the available criteria. You may choose it from a pull-down menu before you click the "Search" button.

It is also possible to define the number of hits per page. If the query results with more hits than can fit on only one page, you will find the links to the following pages under the 'hits' table. You may browse the results by clicking the page number. Similarly, you may browse the results with the help of a pull-down menu at the right side of the 'hits' table.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: Don't let your imagination limit your queries!
