Definitions for "Keyword searching"
A type of search that looks for words in multiple fields of a record, such as titles, contents notes, abstracts and subject headings.
When you search by keyword, each database record is checked for the presence of the word(s) you specify. A record will be retrieved if the words appear in almost any part (or "field") of the record, including the title, subtitle, author, publishing information, and subject fields. Back
Keyword searching allows a user to construct a search by looking for a word or combination of words from the author, title, or subject fields of the BMCC Library Catalog. The location code "BM" can also be searched.
