    How to choose keywords and how to use more than one keyword

  • Word in WWW server means string of characters with only English and Latvian letters, digits and symbols "'" and "&", but in FTP server - every string of characters which consists of English and Latvian letters, digits and apostrophes.
  • This search is case-insentinsive.
  • You can use the booleans and, or, or not in searching. and will be assumed by default. Evaluation takes place from left to right only, although you can use parentheses to force the order of evaluation.
  • You can also use wildcards (asterisks) to search for matches to the beginnings of words only - you can't put asterisks at the front or in the middle of words.
    For example, liepaj* and (muzik* or music*) not 1996 will find documents containing both word begginning with liepaj or liepāj and word beginning with muzik or music and which don't contain word 1996
  • Phrase searching using '"' is possible, but due to software bug it is possible to receive only one page of applicable documents.

    How to find text in Latvian

  • Only those documents in Latvian what are in BalticRim coding are indexed. In process of indexing diacritical letters are converted to corresponding non-diacritical letters. For example, if you want to find word universitāte, you can type universitate.
  • The same words with different endings searcher considers as different words. So you may use wildcards (asterisks) in the place of endings. For example, universitat*.

  • Words with length more than 30 symbols
  • Words with length 1 or 2 symbols in WWW server and words with length 1 symbol in FTP server
  • Words with more than 8 consecutive vowels, consonants or digits (5 consecutive vowels in FTP server)
