String items relationship
Choose 'all' if the entire text string must be found together in a document, 'any' if you are not fussed about which word is found (if searching for more than one word), and 'boolean' if you wish to search for expressions that involve boolean parameters, such as library and association; copyright not royalties; officer or (representative not sample).
Determines how closely an item is matched. Choose 'fuzzy' if you would like to find words that closely match what you have entered, and 'exact' if you only wish to find exactly what you have typed.
Format of search results [Sort by; Format; Entries/page]
It is possible to sort your find results according to the criteria shown in the list. Search results in standard form present a contextual abstract surrounding the text string you are looking for, whereas the abbreviated [brief] search result offers the title of each document only. Search results are grouped into a series of entries, collated into a number of pages, dictated by your choice in the entries per page menu.
