Search with Atrium

Use keywords to search in all fields. In the Books, journals, CDs and more tab, a drop-down list allows you to limit your search to Everything except articles (default setting), to Theses and dissertations, to Images, to Reference works in libraries and to Official documents.

Some rules about writing your queries

  • write meaningful words;
  • the order of the keywords in the search box has an impact on the order in which the results appear when sort by relevance, but it does not affect the number of results;
  • specify the plural or use truncation "*" at the end of the word (ex. cat*);
  • the default operator is "ET", but you can also use the "OU", the "SAUF" and the English translation "AND", "OR" and "NOT" (operators must be written in uppercase);
  • Use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase ("classical music").
  • You can use parentheses to group terms in a query. For example, to search Shakespeare tragedy or sonnet, type the following query: Shakespeare (tragedy OR sonnet).
