Keyword Search Tips
Searches for more than one word together should be enclosed in quotes:
- "Homecoming 2008"
- "Golden Wildcat Reunion"
Above examples will return occurrences of the words only when they appear next to one another.
Boolean operators permit more complex searching. They allow for the inclusion or exclusion of desired words or phrases. Some basic boolean operators can be used on this site.
AND - Putting and between two words will return occurrences of both words in the same page. The words need not be next to each other in the text. Quotes needed only for phrases.
- apple and orange - returns all pages that contain both the word apple and the word orange
AND NOT - Use and not to include one word and exclude the second word (or phrase). Quotes needed only for phrases.
- Young and not library - returns all occurrences of the word Young where the word library does not occur on the same page.
OR - Putting or between two words will return occurrences of either word in a page. The words need not be next to each other in the text. Quotes needed only for phrases.
