Search by keyword

By default the search takes into account all the terms entered.

Eg.: Rimbaud Verlaine will search for Rimbaud AND Verlaine

Search operators

Place a ~ or a – in front of a term to render it optional or exclude it entirely.

Eg.: Rimbaud Verlaine -Corbière will search for Rimbaud AND Verlaine WITHOUT Corbière

Connect terms in a sub-expression with the help of parentheses. It is possible to stack sub-expressions.

Eg.: ~(Rimbaud Verlaine) ~(Verlaine Corbière) will search for Rimbaud WITH Verlaine OR Verlaine WITH Corbière

Truncation

Use an asterisk (*) to replace a number of characters at the end of a word.

Eg.: histo* will search for histoire, histoires, historique, etc.

Literal search

Search for an exact expression made up of a number of words with the help of double quotation marks ("…").

Eg.: "au bonheur des dames"
