How to search more efficiently

To search for an exact phrase, use quotation marks. "Buffalo Sabres" tells the search engine to find those words in sequence.

Use the "+" (plus) sign to designate words that must be contained in your search results. Entering + hockey + rules will search for the rules of the game.

Enter the "-" (minus) sign to designate words that you don't want contained in our search results. Entering + hockey - equipment - supplies will leave out documents pertaining to equipment and supplies.

Boolean operators are another way to customize searches. The most common are AND, AND NOT, and OR. These operators must appear in ALL CAPS, with a space on each side. Dogs AND puppies will find documents that contain both words. Pets AND NOT fish will include documents containing the word pets but not the word fish.
