Find Any Word or Phrase
An Any Word search finds every occurrence of a word or phrase throughout all of the BAS Library.
If you enter two or more words, Any Word will find every occurrence of the first word in articles which also contain the second word. If you type "or" between words, Any Word will find every occurrence of either word.
Title, Author and Topic Searches
Use the Title field to search for a word or phrase in the title, subtitle or special section title of an article.
Use the Author field to search for articles by a particular author. Once you begin typing in the Author field, select the desired author from the drop-down list that appears. To view a complete list of authors, click on Authors in the top menu bar. Click on your desired author.
Use the Topic field to search for articles according to their subject matter. Once you begin typing in the Topic field, select the desired topic from the drop-down list that appears. To view a complete list of topics, click on Topics in the top menu bar. Click on your desired topic.
You can also combine the Any Word search with a Title, Author or Topic search. This allows you to search for a specific phrase in all the articles written by one author or in several articles on the same topic.
Limit Search by Publication, Issue and Date
Use the pull-down menus in the Search box at the left to limit your search by publication, issue and/or date.
Do not put accents or diacriticals in search fields. For instance, if you would like to search for André Lemaire in the Author field, simply type “Andre Lemaire.”
Your search results will appear in the contents area on the left.
When you click on the title of an article in the results list, the article will appear in the contents area on the left, replacing the results list.
At the top right of the contents area, you will find three buttons. Previous takes you to the previous article in the results list. Next takes you to the next article in the results list. Back to Results returns you to the search results.
