please note that, regrettably, the "Search" function is broken. Until it is fixed you will need to use the "find" function, or its equivalent, in the browser you are using

 

Search

Use the form below to search for documents in the ASOMAT web site containing specific words or combinations of words. The text search engine will display a weighted list of matching documents, with better matches shown first. Each list item is a link to a matching document; if the document has a title it will be shown, otherwise only the document's file name is displayed. You will then need to search for the word within the document using your browser's 'search' or 'find' or equivalent function. A brief explanation of the query language is available, along with examples.

finds documents containing both 'dentist' and 'amalgam'

dentist not amalgam
