Some tips for more effective searches

  • Avoid empty words (ex. articles, prepositions, etc.) as they slow down the search;
  • Remember that right hand truncation of search terms is automatic. Ex., global will also retrieve globalization;
  • Save search strategies if you wish by clicking on Conserver/Save in your search results. Your search will be saved under Mes recherches/Saved Searches.
