How to type ?
Typing in upper case or lower case gives the same result.
The accents are ignored. Quiles is equivalent to Quilès.
They are written as : surname, given name
In the rwandan case, they are written : rwandan_name, christian_name
To query on authors, using the character * replaces any omitted characters.
For example :
gives no answer
gives answers because it equals
Saint-Quentin, Grégoire (de)
They are written with eight digits in the form yyyymmdd
For example :
for April 7, 1994.
The date may be right-truncated. For example :
Begin date = 1994041
, End date =
(nothing) selects dates between April 10, 1994 and April 19, 1994.
If begin date
and end date
are truncated they must have the same length.
For example Begin date = 1990
, End date = 1994
documents with date
Typing the first characters of a word position in the list on a word which
begins with that characters.
Entering one or two words word1
The truncation character '*' is not accepted here.
Documents with word1
in any field are selected.
Searching on several fields
You can choose several conditions on specified fields.
These conditions are linked by a logical AND.
For example, if you choose :
Author = Quilès*,
Begin date = 1998
are selected all documents with author = Quilès,Paul AND date = 1998.
The more conditions are chosen the less documents are selected.
If you choose Type = photo
, you obtain a list of pictures.
