Tips for effective browsing

  • Most search techniques (truncation, character masking, Boolean operators, grouping) cannot be used in browse queries. The browse term you enter is matched — character by character, from left to right — against the characters of the terms in the index.
  • Browse to determine whether a subject term occurs in a WebDewey index.
  • Browse to identify alternative terms for the desired subject that do occur in a WebDewey index.
