How to do a search

Use truncation

Truncation is done by using the character * at the end of your search term. By using the charater * at the end of your search term, you search for different endings of the term. 
Eg. health*. In this case you will get results for health, health promotion, health professionals, health politics, health care etc.


Use quotation marks - for phrase searching

If you are searching for a specific title, it is a good idea to ‘use quotation marks around your search term’.

Eg. ”adult learning”. You get a more accurate search with fewer results, because you only get results where the words are in this exact order.

If you are searching for literature on a topic which is expressed in a phrase, you may also want to put the subject in quotes.

Eg. "socially disadvantaged". You will get a more accurate search, since you will only get results where the words are in this exact order.


Refine your search

You may refine your search by selecting one or more facets in the left column. Here you have the option to refine your search by material type, language, author, year etc.

‘Do you want to expand your search again, simply click on the selected facet once more’.

You can also refine your search result by adding more terms to your search.


By default, results are sorted by "relevance", but it is also possible to display the "Release year newest first" by using the scroll bar on the right.
