Full Text Search Fields
You can perform a Full Text Search in AABD using the All Keyword and Source fields:
From the Full Text Search page, you can search for any word or phrase in the full text of the sources in AABD. To enter terms into the search box:
- browse a list of words, which you can transfer back to the search box;
- type your search terms directly into the All Keyword search box. Search terms may consist of single words or phrases:
When searching in the All Keyword field, you can use truncation to retrieve records containing variations on a term. If you choose to search for more than one word, you can combine them using Boolean and proximity searching.
From the Full Text Search page, you can limit your full text search to one or more sources in AABD. If you do not select a source, AABD will automatically search all sources.
You can select sources in two ways:
- scroll through the list and select one source. AABD will search only the full text in that source;
- scroll through the list and multi-select contiguous titles using SHIFT+CLICK and non-contiguous titles using CTRL+CLICK. Highlighted terms can be deselected by moving the cursor to the relevant term and using CTRL+CLICK. (Clicking on an item without holding the CTRL key will automatically deselect all other items.) All selected occupations are treated by default as if they were combined using the Boolean operator OR.
Please Note: An item remains selected even if it scrolls out of the display.
