Foundation for search: All searchprocesses are practised automatically as fulltextservice. If one for instance puts in the field of composer the name of Beethoven, the system is looking after every composer, in whose name there is Beethoven. The result will be Beethoven, Ludwig as Beethoven, Franz. This regards all search-notions.

Hyphen / Special Characters
If you get in the first search result does not simplify, you first search. Do not look the same after a composer with an indication of the work and people but limit the search to come only to the composer, the work or a person. Explore the search results and then refine your search using the data found.

Search for the composer
The search in the field for the composers possesses functions to adapt the name automatically. If you put in Ludwig Beethoven for instance, the system is ooking for all names, in which Ludwig and Beethoven may be found independently of each other. Refardless if the composer is put in as "Beethoven, Ludwig" oder "Beethoven, Ludwig van" - the searchfunction will find it regardless in which way the compilers of the catalogue wrote his name. The same goes for "van Ludwig Beethoven" and so on.

A = placed in front of the text you will find exact matching results (e.g. '=Beethoven, Ludwig').

Up
Search for works
The search for the works possesses the same adaptation as the one for composers. If you put in for instance "Sinfonie Nr. 1", there will be looked after automatically in all parts of the text, that contain "Sinfonie", "Nr." and "1". This has the advantage, that works will be found regardless of the are written correct or not. One disadvantage though for instance is, if the work, you looked after, is "Sinfonien op. 7, Nr. 1". Since the "1" is included, but not identical with the work-number, the data will be found, also it is not identical with that, that you were looking for. Unfortunately we were not able to make the search more precisely.

Up
Seach for persons
It works as the search for composers.

If you place a = in front of the text you will find exact matching results (e.g. '=Lang Lang').

Unknown spelling
In the classical music there are many name, that contain special signs above the letters, whose way of input is either quite difficult or not known to the user. Basically the searchfunction will find all names, if you put them in phonetically. If you put in for instance "Dvorak", the function will find all works of the composer "Dvorák". If one person or a work is not to be found, you can operate as follows:
Please put in a percent-sign (%) instead the sign, you do not know.
Regarding the example of the composer "Dvorák", you may put in "Dvor%k". The system looks after every name then, that contains "Dvor" and "k", with any connection in between both of the letters. Because of that the system will find for instance "Dvorák", "Dvorak" or "Dvoruk".

Up
Combined search
If you put in in the expanded search for instance in the field of composer "Beethoven" and in the field of work "Sinfonien Nr. 1-9", there will be looked after all entries, in which one of the regarding works of the regarding composer are to be found. All offered fields of entry may be combined any way you like it.

Icon in the result-list
As soon as there is a result of the search, this will be offered in the shape of a media-list. If the media possesses a link to a cover or another picture-data of the originator (label), an icon shows in the media-list in front of the entry. The link to the cover is to be found in the detail-field of the database.

Resultlist/Tooltips
On various parts of the resultlist you may generate further informations with your mouse. Is there more information for an entry, there will be shown (Zusatz) behind the entry. As soon as you move the mouse over (Zusatz), this text will be shown in the Tooltip.

Up
If you move the over the entry "1, Person", there will be shown all persons, who are attached to this work (unto 8 entries in one column, unto 16 in two columns, everything more than that in three columns.) Unfortunately it happens, that there is not room enough for all entries on the screen. In this case you have to call up the detail-list, because it isn't possible to scroll the page within of tooltips, due to technical limitations.

Tips for Searching
If you do not receive a result with your first search, simplify it. Don't look for your composer with the exact data for the work or the person, you are looking for, but look for the composer, the work or the person. Take a look at the result of the search then and refine the search regarding to the data you have found.

Automatically generated suggestions
If there are various kinds of spelling known to the system, the search-function will suggest certain ways of writing. If you put in in the field of composers for instance "Cajkowskij", the system will suggest to you automatically the composer "Tschaikowsky". Just click on this suggestion and refine your search after that, as it is shown in the field tips for the search.
