Search the Bibliography


This bibliography is constantly being updated. Regrettably, the coding to enable full search functions sometimes lags behind. this means that a full text search will always retrieve older materials in the bibliography but may sometimes overlook the latest additions. Therefore, the only way to be sure of getting all the new materials is to scroll through the bibliography by main entry. The following alphabetical links will facilitate the process.

Although you may not retrieve all the newest entries using a full text search, there are many occasions when only this method will work for your needs. If so, here is some guidance on the subject.

You may search using any terms you wish, using simple Boolean searching (i.e.: AND and OR), or you may also use proximity operators: eg.: statute w/3 frauds or quality w/10 inspection.

The most productive searches will use the most specific or particular words for the subject you are researching. For instance, if you are searching for materials discussing a particular article of the CISG, entering words from the subject of that article could retrieve useful results. Or if you are searching for discussions of a particular case, you should enter words from the name of the case, if available, or the case date and number or other particulars by which it is known. If you are searching for articles that discuss how the CISG will affect China, you could enter "affect AND China".

Note that string searching is not possible at this time. If, for example, you enter: battle of the forms, the search software will interpret this as battle or of or the or forms. That is to say, the database will return to you all records containing the word battle, plus all records containing the word of, plus all records containing the word the, plus all records containing the word forms -- not a very useful result?

Truncation (i.e.: stemming) is accomplished by means of a single asterisk [*].
