Subject:        Refining Searches in SHAKSPER

Dear SHAKSPERans,

I have been experimenting with the new search function.  Like the old
Database Function, there are a number of ways to refine your searches.

The basic method is to send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. the command
(filling in the KEYWORD you wish without the square brackets):

Search [Keyword] in SHAKSPER

For example, if you wished to see all occurrences of "Pericles," you
would send the following message:

Search Pericles in SHAKSPER

As of today, that search would result in 81 "hits" or "matches."


You can also search using the BOOLEAN operators AND, OR, NOT:

Search Pericles AND Kinsmen in SHAKSPER

As of today, that search would result in 10 "matches."


Further, you can limit your search by DATES:

Search Pericles from 93/1/1 to 96/12/31 in SHAKSPER (55 "matches")

Search Pericles since 96/1/1 in SHAKSPER (34 "matches")


Is this fun or what?

Hardy
