Field: Authors    Seitenanfang 

Syntax: [surname] OPERATOR [first name]
Example: <Steck AND Odil>


HINT: As far as possible, BILDI is provided by the original spelling of the authors' names, as well as diacritic signs. However, due to labor-effency, the names have to be entered in the form they appear in the different publications. Users have to face therefore two problems:

  • the same author can appear in BILDI under different spelling systems
  • diacritic signs (special characters) have to be entered in the search

In these cases the use of fill-ins are recommended:

Example: <AU=Mu?oz>
Result: data with the spelling "Munoz" or "Munñoz" and eventual titles with authors contain another letter in this place.


Members of the BILDI-staff make every effort to standardize different spellings of the same authors.

In this field you can search for every word contained in a title. The title-words have to be combined with operators.
