    CDI versus Local search: phrase search (exact) expansion

    • Product: Primo, Primo VE

    Unlike CDI, searching for a phrase on the local repository will not retrieve expanded versions to the query.

    For example, searching for the exact query
    "Counseling the communicatively disabled and their families" will not retrieve results containing the expansion 'Counselling'.

    In order to retrieve potential expansions, such as synonyms and spelling variations, use a non-exact query.
