Search Tips

  • Use the drop-down menu above to search the database

  • The Keyword option will search all fields concurrently, giving more results (and a wider result set)

  • Punctuation is ignored in searches to improve search results

  • When searching the Author field for an author whose surname contains a prefix or suffix (e.g. van der Merwe or de Beer) use only the root or main part of the surname (i.e. Merwe or Beer)

  • The search automatically searches anywhere within a field - there is no need to use any boolean functions nor special markup characters when searching

  • Use the Search within results option to narrow search results down. Use multiple words to return more refined results. For example, typing 'concrete practice report' will return more relevant results than typing just 'report'.
