Help: Browse Indexes

A browse index listing available search terms can be consulted for all search fields. Most browse indexes are arranged alphabetically. To access a browse index, click Browse next to the relevant search box.

If you have entered a term into the search box before clicking Browse, the browse index will open with the nearest match to that term highlighted. The term entered is displayed above the browse index in the Look For... search box. For example, if you enter Seele into the Keyword field and click Browse, Seele will be carried over into the Look For... search box and the browse index will open at the relevant point with Seele already highlighted.

If you have entered more than one term into the search box before clicking Browse (separated by either Boolean or Proximity operators), the last term only will be carried over into the browse index.

If you do not enter a term into the search box before clicking Browse, the browse index will open displaying the first 200 entries. The Look For... search box will be blank.

Once in the browse index, you can navigate using:

You can select as many terms as you wish within each section of 200 entries. When the desired term or terms are highlighted, click OK to transfer them back to the relevant search box. Any term carried over into the browse index will be replaced by the terms selected in the browse index.

Each item transferred will be enclosed in double quotes. When you transfer more than one search term from a browse index to a search box, Die Deutsche Lyrik automatically combines them using the Boolean operator OR.

Note: Netscape Navigator (Windows) users can multi-select contiguous terms using SHIFT+CLICK and non-contiguous terms using CTRL+CLICK. Highlighted terms can be deselected by moving the cursor to the relevant term and using CTRL+CLICK.
