NOTE: Using multiple words or phrases without quotes or plus or minus
signs will return any combination of those words found anywhere
on a page, with most likely first.
To get more specific search results, try using the following tips:
||Make sure spelling of search terms is correct. The search engine will attempt to
find words that sound similar to your search terms, but results
will be better if spelling is correct.
||Use multiple words to return more refined results than from a single word. Possibly
relevant results are returned even if they don't contain all query
Example: water conservation
||Use similar words. The more similar words you use, the more relevant the results.
Example: ancient old-growth forest
||Use appropriate capitalization. Capitalize proper nouns. Lowercase words will match any case.
For example, typing "native" will return all documents containing the words native, Native, and NATIVE. However, typing "Native" will only search for pages with "Native".
Example: Native American
||Use quotation marks to find words which must appear adjacent to each other and in
that order. Otherwise, the search results will include the words
found anywhere, and in any order, within the document.
Example: "water conservation"
||Use plus (+) or minus (-). A plus sign indicates your search term or phrase must appear
in the search results. A minus sign indicates words that must
be absent in the search results. Note: A phrase must be contained
within quotation marks. Leave no spaces between the plus or minus
sign and the term.
Example: +"water conservation"
