The German Literature Collections website enables you to search for keywords, title keywords or authors across the individual databases which make up the collections. Each of the search fields has a browse list to help in the formulation of searches. Keyword searches can also be performed on words in combination, or words in close proximity. Truncation searching allows you to retrieve documents containing variations on a search term, thus accommodating the complexity of the German language.

The results of your search are displayed in a Search Results page. This allows you to see the number of hits your search term has found in each of the individual databases. You can then click on the link to each of the individual databases and see your hits displayed in a Summary of Matches page. Clicking on these hits will then take you to the Full Text page.
