The page “Search by Vocabulary” allows, as a first step, to search for a term in the vocabularies which have been loaded, then to select this term in order to build, as a second step, a search which will be launched on the document repository.
Search of a term
The vocabularies contain preferred terms to describe a concept, but also sometimes synonyms and associated terms. A search with any of these types of terms is possible.
Enter one or more words in the search box to search for a term. Three types of search are possible, each corresponding to a button:
Wildcards are possible on an entered word. See : Searching Tips
Once the search is launched, the list of the terms found appears below the input box.
Clicking on a term of the results list enables visualizing the whole description of this term, that is:
You can then launch another search if the first one does not fit, or select one of the terms.
A second page associated to the search by vocabulary then appears, allowing a documentary search in the repository. It operates like the first one and is useful, here, if one wishes to search for another term.
Space of constitution of the documentary search in the repository
It appears on the right-hand side of the page:
Below the space of constitution of the documentary search, there is the list of the fields on which we want to launch the previously constituted search. You can select some fields by ticking the corresponding boxes or choose to launch the query on all fields by ticking the “all fields” box.
Clicking on the “Search in the database” button allows to query the documentary collection and to access to the results page.
There is a technical limitation in the consideration of the synonyms and the children which can prove to be too numerous ( >500 terms); a dialog box then appears inviting you not to use them in the research, by unchecking the box corresponding to the choosen term.
