Find Any Word or Phrase
An Any Word search finds every occurrence of a word or phrase throughout all of the BASarchive.
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 Subject 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. To view a complete list of authors (or to be sure of the correct spelling), click on Author List on the left. Click on your desired author and then click on Submit Search at the top of the Author List box. After the Author List box closes, click on Search at the bottom of the search tools on the left.
Use the Subject field to search for articles according to their subject matter. To view a complete list of subjects (or to be sure of the correct spelling), click Subject List on the left. Click on your desired subject and then click on Submit Search at the top of the Subject List box. After the Subject List box closes, click on Search at the bottom of the search page.
You can also combine the Any Word search with a Title, Author or Subject 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 Issue and Date
Use Limit Search by Issue to restrict the number of books or magazine issues through which the search will be performed.
Use Limit Search by Date to select a date range through which the search will be performed.
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 right.
When you click on the title of an article in the results list, the article will appear in the contents area on the right, 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.
