Are there any search prerequisites and limitations I need to know?

Yes, below are the search prerequisites and limitations you need know:

  1. You must be granted permission by the administrator to search, view search data, and facet that data. Otherwise, you may not see the full (or any) search results.
  2. For your organization’s web security, by default Digital Library does not allow searches for HTML tags, SQL commands, or special characters such as: ~ $ % ^ + [ ] { } ?
  3. Solr search uses OR, not AND, Boolean logic when searching for multiple terms. This logic is different from the original Digital Library SQL search method. However, note that the Solr algorithm ranks search results by order of significance, so hits for multiple terms will appear higher in the search rankings.
