Subject: Searching SHAKSPER Archive
It has been suggested to me privately that it would be useful if I were to provide or remind subscribers of methods for using the SEARCH function at the SHAKSPER web site: shaksper.net .
Below are written instructions and attached is a pdf file of the instructions with illustrations of what is discussed.
Using the SHAKPER.net) Archive functions:
For a simple search, go to the search box to the right side of any page on the site, enter search terms, click go, and scroll through results, selecting the one you are looking for.
Another technique is to bring the cursor over Archive to get the drop down menu.
If you are looking from something from a particular date, you can move down to the year and click to bring up the months of that year.
Clicking on the month provides a complete list of all postings during that month.
Browse through lists to find article you are looking for.
You get the most flexibility by going to the home page drop down menu for Archive and selecting “Search Archive”: http://shaksper.net/archive/search. (You can also get this search box by clicking on “Advanced Search” on the right side of all pages on the site.)
From this click on “Advanced Search” to find these instructions:
Here are a few examples of how you can use the search feature:
- Entering this and that into the search form will return results containing both “this” and “that”.
- Entering this not that into the search form will return results containing “this” and not “that”.
- Entering this or that into the search form will return results containing either “this” or “that”.
- Entering “this and that” (with quotes) into the search form will return results containing the exact phrase “this and that”.
If you would further like to search by month, select the month from the drop down menu under “Search by Category”, where you can also limit by “SHAKSPER Book Reviews”, “SHAKPER Roundtable Discussion”, and so on.
