    = chase, look-up [lookup], search, search request, searching, hunt, hunting, reaching, trawl, querying.
    Ex. Enthusiasm in a searcher, of course, all are agreed on: 'he must delight in the chase for its own sake'.
    Ex. With online display, the alphabetical arrangement can become less significant, since all look-ups can be achieved with the computer, and there is less need for the scanning of alphabetical lists.
    Ex. Even a user who starts a search with a specific subject in mind, may be seeking a specific subject which does not quite match requirements.
    Ex. The search request is displayed on the screen and assigned a number in the extreme left column.
    Ex. Indexing and searching, then, are integral one to another, and so a few comments on searching are in order here = Por lo tanto, la indización y la búsqueda son complementarios y así pues es pertinente hacer algunos comentarios aquí sobre la búsqueda.
    Ex. If a search, manual or on-line, appears likely to last more than a few minutes, and should the librarian decide not to encourage the enquirer to join in the hunt, good practice requires that the visitor be given something to be going on with and invited to sit down.
    Ex. It was not until the 16th century that falconry and stag hunting gained the significance that it retained until 1789.
    Ex. 'Searching' or even 'ordering' would be better, so long as we didn't imply by either of them an 'irritable reaching after fact and reason'.
    Ex. 'Systematic review' is the process whereby similar studies, identified from a comprehensive trawl of numerous databases, are summarized in digestible form.
    Ex. The project consortium will complete a feasibility study into the automatic indexing of free text and the multilingual querying of text databases = El consorcio creado realizar el proyecto llevará a cabo un estudio de viabilidad sobre la indización automática de texto libre y la consulta en varios idiomas de bases de datos de texto.
