Searching with PLWeb Turbo
Searching is a process, not an event. This should be your mantra when using PLWeb Turbo. Searching a database is not about
spending time and mental energy formulating a "golden query" that will retrieve all desired information in a single
stroke. In practice, searching usually consists of issuing a succession of queries until you are satisfied with the results.
After each query, you evaluate its success by asking:
"Did I find what I was looking for?"
"Is better information still out there?"
"How can I refine my query to find better information?"
Issuing multiple queries can be frustrating or rewarding, depending on the overall time it takes to find what you really
need. With PLWeb Turbo, you can expedite successful retrieval by getting advice from the software and using the results of
prior searches to formulate new queries. This interactive process is called feedback searching, a rapid and intuitive
approach to getting the information you want.
