Searching Hints

Our search engine performs a case-insensitive search using keywords you specify.

Examples of common keywords are:

All of our documents are about rabbits; therefore, there is no need to include the word rabbit or rabbits in your search.

In general, it is best to use the plural version of a word as the keyword. For example, search for pictures, not picture. Search for diseases, not disease.

Advanced Searching

You can use the booleans and, or, or not in searching. Without these booleans, the search engine assumes you're anding the words together. Evaluation takes place from left to right only, although you can use parentheses to force the order of evaluation.

You can also use wildcards (asterisks) to search for matches to the beginnings of words only - you can't put asterisks at the front or in the middle of words.

Example Searches

diet or food
This will search for documents containing either the word diet or the word food.

diet not hay
This will search for documents containing the word diet, but not the word hay.
