Types of search

There are different types of search:

- Simple search: this is the default type that appears when you access the database. It allows you to make simple, easy searches. You only have to type the search terms with no need to use operators.

-Search by fields: this lets us make more precice, assisted searches restricted to specific fields, or combine different fields.

-Search by indices: this lets us see the indices corresponding to some fields and to search directly via them. It is useful for knowing vocabulary and making a precise search.

Boolean operators

These are used when we want to get documents with two or more search criteria. We have to combine these searches, which gives rise to what is known as a search strategy. This can be via a field search.
