Smart search - limitations

  • You can enter up to 20 search terms in total, with a maximum of ten per searchable piece of bibliographic data.
  • Left truncation is not supported, nor is truncation within a word.
  • Search terms have to be entered in English to ensure the correct results are retrieved.
  • Slashes can only be used in date formats (e.g. dd/mm/yyyy) and CPC / IPC symbol entries.
  • Stop words, which are common words such as FOR, WITH, THE, BUT, AND, OF, ANY, etc, are not searchable as they would otherwise produce too many results.
