To use the search page, you can look for a single word. Or, use the tips below to refine your search to find more specific results.
Example: type sports events to find the exact phrase sports events. Since the search is not case-sensitive, this is equivalent to Sports Events.
Example: type sports AND events to find documents that have both the word sports and the word events anywhere.
When you use NEAR, the closer together the words are, the higher the rank of the page, so the higher it appears in the list of search results.
Example: type sports NEAR events to match documents where the word sports is within 50 words of the word events.
Note that if you don't use the OR operator and search using multiple words, the words are treated as a phrase.
Example: type dogs OR puppies to find the word dogs or the word puppies, but not necessarily both.
Example: type surfing AND NOT the Internet to find all instances of surfing, as long as surfing is not followed by the phrase the Internet.
Example: type "houses near parks" to find documents with the phrase houses near parks. Without the double quotes, this query would use the NEAR operator instead of the phrase.
Example: type key* to find key, keying, keyhole, keyboard, and so on.
Example: type fly** to match fly, flew, flown, and flying.
