Search with AND, OR, NOT

 

 

Searching term tricks

*   Expand the word you are searching to include plurals. etc.: Pakis* gives you Pakistan, Pakistani 


"quotes"   Use for phrases: "Nobel Peace Prize"


OR   Use for either or searching: Child or teen


And   Use to combine terms you want to have: Educat* and Pakis*


Not   Use when you want to eliminate a word from your search (Warning: if you cut a word and it is in an article with words you want, you won't see that article!)
