There is a simple search entry that follows you throughout your work flow. Here you can easily change an on-going search or start a new search. Any search using this one-line search box will always be a free-text search (performed in all indexes and fields) if you do not specify a special qualifier(list in swedish only) as a prefix.
If your search includes few words and/or "common" words, you will obtain many hits. One way to handle and decrease large hit volumes is to use the "Refine your search" feature on the right of the hit list.
If your search includes many words, unusual words, or significant words, or if you combine several fields in the extended search form, you will obtain fewer hits.
You can truncate with an asterisk (*) to find words with a variety of different endings and derivatives.
You can mask individual characters with a question mark (?) to find a variety of different spellings.
You can search for exact phrases by placing the phrase within quotation marks (").
You can truncate with an asterisk (*) to find words with a variety of different endings and derivatives. Right-hand truncation is the most common. In this case, the search will find all the words that begin with the word stem used. You can also use the truncation character within a search term (see below). However, left-hand truncation is not possible.
You can mask characters with a question mark (?) to find a variety of different spellings. Each question mark corresponds to one character.
The masking character can be used together with the truncation character (in the same search term). In that case the masking character must precede the truncation character.
