Manual 6. Search using Full text search

Full text search supports searching all records in the database for the occurrence of any text, such as names and dates. Full text search can therefore be used to search database fields that have not been indexed through the Browse or Search function, such as fields with additional explanations and references to the literature. For this search possibility the Google search engine is implemented, which will only search the records of the MeMO database.

To obtain the best results from Full text search, it is advised to execute the search using variations of the search terms. Though an effort has been made to use standard phrases for all text fields, they may vary. You may consult the glossary for inspiration in the selection of suitable terms.
