Search Tips

Here are some tips for better search results:

Boolean:  You can include or exclude certain terms in the search results by including Boolean operators (and, or, not, xor) in your search string. for example: 

  • Eastwood and Peckinpah retrieves material that contains both terms.
  • Eastwood or Peckinpah retrieves material that contains either or both terms, but both are not required.
  • Eastwood not Peckinpah retrieves material that contains the word Eastwood but not Peckinpah.
  • Eastwood xor Peckinpah retrieves material that contains either Keats or Wordsworth, but not both together.

Truncation: film* searches for film, filming, films, filmed, etc.

Wildcard: m?n searches for man, men, etc.

               m??n searches for moon, mean, etc.

Parenthesis:  You can use parenthesis to build a search with multiple boolean operators. for example: (Eastwood and unforgiven) xor (Peckinpah and bunch)

Quotation marks: You can search for entire phrases by using quotes. for example: Peckinpah and "the wild bunch"
