Literature search & administration

Literature search and library catalogue


Simple search

Enter the search terms (e.g. keywords, author names) in the search field and click on search.

  • The Search Engine assumes that you are searching for all the words you type, unless Boolean operators like OR or NOT are specified between the words and phrases. To use Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) within search phrases, you must enter them in uppercase letters. Otherwise, the online catalogue will consider them as part of the query.


Search strategy

  • If you enter several terms, they are automatically linked by the AND operator. Only entries that contain all search terms are displayed in the results.
    Example: marketing leadership
  • If you are looking for a specific phrase, enclose your search terms in quotation marks. You can combine words and phrases in your search:
    Example: „strategy development for“
  • If you are looking for synonymous search terms, link them with the OR operator. In order to search for titles which contain the word “social media” or the word “web”, enter the following in the search field:
    Example: social media OR web
  • To exclude a term from your search results, which includes certain words or phrases use the NOT Operator
    Example: social media NOT web
  • If you are not sure how to spell a word or if you want to simultaneously search for several word endings, use a so-called placeholders.
    Example: ?:
    Replaces a single letter
    Enter wom?n to search for woman and women .
    *: Replaces several letters
    Enter cultur* to search for culture, cultural and culturally.
    If you want to combine several search options in one query, put them in parenthesis:
    Example: Marketing (“personal” OR “hrm”)


Advanced Search

In the advanced search, you can link search terms in various search fields.


You can also narrow your search for specific criteria in advance (e.g. media type, language etc.).
