Search by Vocabulary
You can access to the Search by Vocabulary mode from the main menu.
The strategy is here, as a first step, to query vocabularies to select a term, view the detail of the associated concept, then to create a small search equation.
The equation can be augmented by the search of a second term, and so on.
As a second step, once this equation is entirely established, you can start a search on the documentary collection, possibly selecting the concerned metadata.
