In basic search we can use truncation (*). We can browse by index; the program skips to the word beginning we entered before. The connected words, e.g. title of journal, author’s name, are hyphenated and can be downloaded by a double click. The search can be narrowed by operators: AND (both words should appear), OR(one of the words should appear), NOT (records containing the first word provided they do not contain the second as well), WITH (both words are in the same field).
