In the Basic Search you can search for terms either in the General Index or in the Fulltext of the documents. Enter your search term in the entry field. You choose where to look by selecting one of the two options shown below the entry field. The search in General Index is the default setting.



Click Basic Search in the blue menu bar to open the search form.


AND, OR and NOT can be used for combining search terms. When no operator is used to combine search terms, they are automatically combined with AND.

Enclose search terms in quotation marks to perform a phrase search i.e. when searching specifically for a passage in which the words occur in the order entered.

Use wildcard characters - a question mark for a single letter or an asterisk for any number of letters - if you wish to include variations of a word in the search.


Having entered a search query, start the search by clicking the Search button.
