    WorldCat stop words search

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Primo


    Does WorldCat search ignores stop words?


    No. Stop words are being searched as well in a WorldCat search (via the WorldCat adaptor). Different results are retrieved for search terms with or without stop words. For example, a search for "Life" will retrieve more results than a search for "The Life".

    Additional Information

    This is WorldCat search behavior and can't be controlled from Primo.
