Do IntelliConnect and LoislawConnect provide Natural Language word searching?
While IntelliConnect and LoislawConnect do not allow Natural Language searching, they both provide helpful alternative search options to return equivalent results and also provide sorting tools to pare down large results lists to on-point material. For example, use the following steps within IntelliConnect and LoislawConnect to get similar results to the following Natural Language search expression: In what situations are punitive damages often granted in breach of contract actions?
- Search “all content” for search expression using key words with spaces in between terms, with quotes to force phrases, and Thesaurus ON. (A space is interpreted as “AND”)
For example: grant punitive damages “breach of contract”
- If needed, re-sort results to Relevance
- Additional Options:
- Search “within results” for new key word(s)
- Use Filters to restrict results by: Doc Type, Library, Court and/or Jurisdiction
- Search selected database(s) and enter key words, using “AND” between terms into the “Search Entire Document” field. (Quotes are not needed to force a phrase. Basic endings such as past tense, plural, and “ing” and “tion” endings are automatically applied to all terms.)
For example: grant and punitive damages and breach of contract
- Change results display to Relevance order
- Additional Options:
- Place the tilde symbol, ~, in front of key terms (with or without a space) to activate the thesaurus and return synonyms for your key words. For example: ~ grant and ~ punitive damages and ~ breach of contract
- Use the green Refine Results button to search for additional key words/phrases
- Use Filters on the left to restrict results to specific Jurisdiction, Court or Type of Document
