Using Keywords/Descriptors

Successful searches will most likely occur through the use of
keywords [descriptors], which are for the most part listed in German in the keyword field (descriptor field in RefWorks) . Most of these keywords/descriptors were added by the bibliographers, although others were taken over as a result of other searches. Thus English terms are occasionally found, as well as items in other formats. Eventually dual sets of keywords in both languages will be included with each entry. For now, English-speaking researchers should consult the list below to locate the German term. More keywords occur in the RefWorks Search Menu (-> Lookup by Descriptor) than are included on the list below, which contains the ones most frequently encountered. For more details, see the Instructions page, especially the "Advanced Search " section, since the software does not understand terms that are not entered consistent with its peculiarities.

It is often useful to combine a
keyword/descriptor with other search terms, such as classification (type of work) or language. For example, to find all dissertations that deal with Die Wupper, the user would search for "Die Wupper" under Keywords/Descriptors AND "Dissertation" under Classification (due to the software conversion it might currently be contained in other fields as well).  An English list of the Types of Work/Classifications follows the Keyword section below. (Many references contain more than one Type of Work).

Type of Work/Classification: English translations of the German terms

The data field Classification describes the type of work. Many entries have more than one type of work listed. The term Primärliteratur [primary literature] is used only for works by Lasker-Schüler herself. It may be supplemented by other terms, such as Übersetzung [translation]. The term Sekundärliteratur [secondary literature] is sometimes found in the other entries, but searches should be conducted using one of the more specific terms below. The term Fachliteratur is the most common term used for scholarly literature about Lasker-Schüler and her works.
