This search applies to: Caselaw, Notifications, Circulars, Articles.

Reference-wise search is a tool used to search for content whose reference (citation) is partly or completely known1. For partly known references, users can start with the known criteria (e.g. Volume number) and narrow down search to find data that is near the reference sought. For fully known references TLOL Suite™ 3.0’s easy point-and-click selection quickly displays the desired reference.

Starting with partial reference

If you do not know or know only part of the reference of a caselaw or statute or article you are searching for, you may start with an approximate value for either the year or volume option under referencewise search. Once you have found content matching your approximation it would be easier to narrow down your search by browsing through the smaller list of identified results.

Starting with year

  1.  Check Year above the first column in the Query Panel. The list of years available for selected journal will appear in the column below Year.

  2. If you require results from a different journal, select the appropriate journal tab (See “Journal Selection Tabs”). The list of years will change to suit the selected journal.

  3. Select the required year from the list displayed. Using the provided Easy-select field will help faster selection.

    1. If you are selecting a single year, you may also  check Volume and select the volume from the list displayed. TLOL Suite™ 3.0 will only display volumes published in the selected year.

    2. You can also select multiple years by  checking as many years as you want from the displayed list (See “Multi-select”). However, selecting multiple years will disable the volume and page col­umns.

  4.  Click Search to view results from all the volume(s) published in the selected year(s).

If no journal-tabs are selected, TLOL Suite™ 3.0 will first search on the jour­nal mentioned in the top-most tab. You may also change journals tab after the search is complete on one, to start the same search on the next.

Starting with volume:

  1.  Check volume above the second column in the Query Panel. The list of volumes available for selected journal will appear in the column below volume.

  2. If you require results from a different journal, select the appropriate journal tab (See “Journal Selection Tabs”). The list of years will change to suit the selected journal.

  3. Select the volume from the list provided. Using the Easy-select will help faster selection.

    1. If you are selecting a single volume, you may proceed directly to step 3.    below, as “year” selection is redundant.

    2. You may also select multiple volumes by  checking as many vol­umes as you want in the displayed list. (See “Multi-select”). How­ever, selecting multiple volumes will disable the year and page columns.

  4.  Click Search to view all the results from selected volume(s). Scroll through the list till you reach the desired result.

Starting with complete reference2

  1.  Check year, select the year(s).

  2.  Check volume, select the volume(s).

  3.  Check page and select the page(s).

  4.  Click Search to view the result.

To view Notifications, Circulars or Articles associated with the selected ref­erence(s), choose Notification, Circulars or Articles tab respectively. See “Content-stream Selection Tabs”
