Search Tips

Phrase Searching
You can use double quotes to search for a series of words in a particular order.

For example, "World war II" (with quotes) will give more precise results than World war II (without quotes).

Wildcard Searching
If you want to search for multiple variations of a word, you can substitute a special symbol (called a "wildcard") for one or more letters.

You can use * to represent 0 or many characters.
You can use ? to represent 1 single character.

For example, econom* will find both economics as well as economies, and organi?e will find both organise and organize.

Advanced Searching
Our Advanced Search tool lets you easily search multiple fields at the same time and combine terms in complex ways. See the help page for more details.
