SearchingThe Knowledge Basket provides a search screen designed to facilitate searching both by novice searchers, and by expert searchers.
Help with Searching
For example: In the screenshot below, we have entered the phrases "climate change", "global warming" and "greenhouse effect", separated by commas. The result will be articles retrieved with any of the phrases in them, sorted by relevance.
In the following screenshot below, we have put in the first searchbox the phrases "climate change" or "global warming" and in the second box, put in the word "island" with an asterisk "island*" which will retrieve articles with either the phrase "global warming" or "climate change" together with island, islands or islanders.
Note in the example, the user has chosen the Sort By "Date" button to sort the results by the most recent articles and has limited the date range by entering 01 Jan 2009 in the first date search box.
For Example: The screenshot below shows the user searching for the phrases pacific island and sea level in close proximity to each other within a paragrah.
For Example, here the user has chosen to search recent editions of newspapers, newsfeeds and magazines - but not international news:
Once you click on the "Search" button, you will get a list of results matching your keyword search. The results will be displayed either by score or chronologically, depending on which button you selected. You will get the date, source and title of the documents retrieved. The screen will also show you how many documents matched your search. If you click on the title, the full article/document will be displayed. Note: You may get duplicate titles showing... this is not a mistake; the newspaper publishers often send us slightly differing versions of stories depending on the edition, timing of the article's release, collection it came from and so on.
The screenshot below shows you what a typical full-text article will look like when you have clicked on a title from the Results screen. Note there is a logo corresponding to the article's source which will take you to the source website if you wish to go there. The article also shows your search terms highlighted in red.
