- The search-screen is pre-set to display only 3 hits per website. This means that a broad spektrum of hits from various websites can be displayed simultaneously. You have the option to change these settings, or to go direct from the hits from a website to the other hits from that site.
- Hits are only displayed from web pages which contain all the given search terms.
- Use of upper or lower case are not relevant for searching.
- The search for terms in a sequence exactly as typed requires the use of quotation marks, e.g. "Attic Tomb Relief" or "Old Babylonian Cylinder Seal".
- To exclude a word from the search place a minus sign before it, e.g. "Acropolis -Athene" or "Ziggurat -Ur".
- Punctuation marks are treated as spaces and divide groups of words into separate search-terms, e.g. http://www.kalkriese-varusschlacht.de/ = www kalkriese varusschlacht de, http://www.etana.org/abzu/ = www etana org abzu.
