GVK, the GBV Union Catalogue, is a multimaterial bibliographic database of seven German federal states. It covers 41.5 million records of books, conference proceedings, periodicals, dissertations, microfilms and electronic resources.

all - all words. Not specifYing a search key results in an "all" search

per - authors, editors, etc.
thm - topics
slw - key words
txt - tables of content
num - numbers, e.g. ISBN
kon - names of conferences
ppn - Pica Production Numbers of the GVK
bkl - Basisklassifikation-numbers
erj - year of publication
queries can be combined with "and". The use of "and" is optional, though.
in many cases you can use the truncation sign "?"
spaces in person names are not supported yet. Please use the truncation sign ? after the first name for several given names. E.g. "per Maas,jan?"
"per grodke and tit db2"
