Welcome to Landwise: A Women & Land Library. We have a robust search engine designed to meet the needs of advanced and novice searchers alike. This guide will give you an overview of what is possible.
If you notice a bug, or have suggestions for how we could improve this website, please let us know here.
- The search is not case sensitive.
- The system will accept the following boolean operators: AND, OR, and NOT. Boolean operators do not have to be in all capitals.
china and marriage
china not marriage
china or india and marriage
- The system does not automatically insert the "AND" boolean operator joins between disparate words. Instead, it will interpret multiple words strung together without a boolean operator as a specific phrase.
Correct: china and marriage and law
Incorrect: china marriage law
- You can use an asterisk * to denote a wildcard.
Example: The below search will pull up any results that have the word "land" in the beginning (e.g. land, lands, landlord, etc.)
Narrowing Search Results
- Users can directly search within specific fields.
- You can also search multiple fields at once by using Boolean operators.
