Successful Searching Tips It is important to type in precise and relevant words relating to what you are searching for. The more words you use, fewer sites you get in your search results they are more likely to contain what you're looking for.
You can also narrow down your searching by trying these main things: *Put words that belong together in quotation marks (such as a phrase, a full name, or lyrics of a song)
*Boolean Searching: Use and, or, or not to narrow your search in upper case letters. AND is used when you want to find titles that have two things in them Example: mammals AND reptiles
OR is used when you want to find a title that mentions one of two things Example: mammals OR reptiles
NOT is used when you want to find a title that does not mention two things Example: mammals NOT reptiles
*Sometimes websites use different words or phrases to describe the information you are looking for. A synonym for a word may bring better results than the word itself.
