Search Tips

AND narrows down your search results to those which contain only these terms.

  •     Example:  gender AND warfare = Searches for all the records that contain both of these terms.

OR expands your search. 

  •     Example:  gender OR women OR feminist = Searches for records that contain any of these terms

NOT eliminates unrelated records from your search results.

  •     Example:  Middle Ages NOT crusades = Searches for all results with Middles Ages that do not contain any reference to the Crusades.

Truncation ( * ) allows you to search for multiple word endings in one search.  Place an * at the end of the word root to obtain more search results.

    Example:

    Environ* = Searches for any text containing environment, environmental, environ, environs, etc.

Quotation Marks (" ") allow you to narrow your search to an exact phrase.

    Example:

    "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" = Searches for that exact phrase.

Wildcards (?) allow you to search for variant spellings within a word in one search.

    Example:

    Wom?n = Searches for woman or women
