Volter Basic Search

Tips for searching:

  • Boolean operators must be written in capital letters (AND/OR/NOT). The default operator is AND.
  • Truncate with an asterisk (*), mark phrases with " ". You can also use advanced search.
  • Theses and dissertations.
  • The books are indexed using the YSO (General Finnish ontology).
  • The electronic books are indexed in English.
  • Books and journals written in the Cyrillic script are found best by searching with Latin transliteration according to the international standard. Notice, that the standard was slightly changed in 1995.
