4. SEARCH FOR FULL TEXT

4.1 Introduction

     With today's modern library, the library's documentation not only includes traditional documents stored in archives, but also includes attachments stored on the server. And as the data grows, the problem of finding accurate information becomes more important. With a large amount of data and complex organization, the problem is how to find the right information quickly and accurately. Users do not want to search for a word with millions of answers, they need accuracy and eliminate jamming words. At that point, users will need full-text search.

      Full-text search is a function in KIPOS integrating the popular open source search engine, Lucene.net, which has had a long and complete development time, and large usage in the world. Besides, this is a technical programming solution (the API library - providing programming interfaces), all index and search controls are controlled by KIPOS, so it has many advantages compared to the integration of external automation solutions.

4.2 Perform a search

From the homepage of KIPOS, select Lookup → Full Text Search

The full text search interface Appears as follows:

Enter a query in the search box. By default, the program finds records that satisfy the search field condition that contains all the words in the search condition. To require the program to find the exact phrase, use quotes to enclose the phrase. (The remaining steps are similar to the search terms introduced above.)
