Full-text Search Hints

The search box on the PREMIS Implementation Registry's home page uses full-text searching of a MySQL database. This means that:

  • You cannot search for words that have fewer than four letters.
  • Certains common words are "stop words" and cannot be searched.
  • The default for multiple terms is a Boolean "AND".
  • You can use an asterisk (*) to truncate a word at the end (e.g., digit*).
  • Using quotes will search for that specific string of characters.

If you have difficulty finding a particular project, try a few different search strategies. If all else fails, feel free to contact us at [email protected].
