Title
Searching full-text : tips and techniques
Source
Information today. 9(1992) no.10, S.10-12
Year
1992
Abstract
Gives tips for effective searching of full-text databases: think creatively about vocabulary and use of the OR connector to link synonyms; use truncation to pick up plurals and alternative work endings; anticipate international differences in spellimg, likie 'labor' and 'labour', and in vocabulary, like 'truck' and 'lorry'; avoid the AND operator, preferring proximity connectors like NEAR, WITHIN or PRE; use jargon instead of trying to anticipate all the abstract terminology that a writer might have used; and exploit any indexing available
