Search Help

Default Search

  • The default search is a basic keyword search.
  • Each individual word is searched for anywhere in a web page.
  • Searches are not case-sensitive.
  • Results are ordered by the prevalance of the search term.

Other Searches

  • Phrase Search
    To perform a phrase search (words appearing in a particular order) use " " quotation marks around the phrase.
  • Word Stem Search
    To find multiple word stems such as plurals, you can use an * asterisk as a wildcard. It will not work at the start of a word. You can also use the wildcard to truncate terms.
  • Boolean Search
    You can also use the basic boolean operators: and, or, not. These operators can be used with ( ) brackets to create sets within a search.
