For this search we have a combination of "PERSON / ORGANISATION" attributes (gender = female) and "Work" attributes (form = novel, date of publication = 1939).
Firstly, we will click the "Limit search to author role" option because we are after the people who have written the novels, not other people that may have been involved like translators.
Now let's add the gender.
Open up the "Personal details" accordion and you will see "Gender" fifth from the top:
In the "Work" area, open up the "Form / Genre / Type" accordion. Choose "novel" from the "Form" options.
Below "Form / Genre / Type" is the "Publication details" area. Open this up and you will see several date fields.
The "First known date" only includes the year that the work was first published, whereas the "Date of publication" includes other years where different versions of that work were published, so we will use "Date of publication" in this instance.
Now click the "Search" button and we should see all novels written by women that were published in 1939.
For this one, we combine open the "Form / Genre / Type" accordion and choose "poetry" as the form, and "anthology" as the type.
We then open the "Publication details" accordion, and add the "2013" as the "Date of publication".
The results can be seen here.
Next we look at the "Cultural heritage" field. This is where it gets tricky because we want to say "find anybody who identifies as Finnish, Swedish, Danish OR Norwegian" so we actually need FOUR "Cultural heritage" fields.
We get multiple fields by clicking the plus button to the right of the text box, so let's click it three times to get four fields in total.
You will notice that once an extra field is made, a "down arrow" shows next to the top field. This is for toggling between an AND or an OR search. If we didn't press this button, we would be looking for people who identify as Finnish AND Swedish AND Danish AND Norwegian, so we will press it so we search instead for people who identify as Finnish OR Swedish OR Danish OR Norwegian.
The "Cultural heritage" field is an example of an autofill field, so start typing and it will give you a number of results to choose from.
We can use the search above as the basis for this search.
First change is we want the writers themselves, not translators or illustrators etc, so we will check the "Limit search to author role only" in the PERSON / ORGANISATION box.
Next we will open the "Geographic and temporal settings" accordion in the "SUBJECT" box. Start typing "Queensland" and the option should be there for you to choose.
We also add the dates "2010-2015" as the "Date of publication".
Further down the same "Publication Details" area, is the "Peer-reviewed" checkbox, which we will select.
Further down in the "Find works within other works", we select the "Container work type" as "periodical issue", to restrict the results to those found in container works that identify as journals, rather than newspapers or websites.
Inside the "Subject" area, we will choose "Person or organisation as subject". We will then start typing "David Malouf" into the text box, and select the correct author when it is shown. We will also select the "All this author's works as subjects" checkbox, so that we choose works about Malouf's works, rather than works about the author himself.
You can also search within organisations only by checking the box in the Person / Organisation area. By toggling the minus icon on the right of this box you can exclude organisations from your search.
