Search by Character-string recognizes any precise string of characters, numerals, spaces, and punctuation marks. Phrases can be searched, but avoid quotation marks, apostrophes, and diacritical marks as they may vary from parallel coding in the database.

Search by Specific Fields enables more refined searches, restricted by data-field (author/editor, title, alternative title, date, etc.) and delimiters (contains, does not contain, starts with, etc.), both available in drop-down menus. Specific Field searches can be combined using And / Or options and they can be used alone or in combination with Character-string searches.
