4.2 Search Tips

  • You can use both uppercase and lowercase letters in search terms. Searches are not case-sensitive by default.

    To perform a case-sensitive search, put double quotation marks (“) around the word you want to match exactly. For example, if you use “APPLE” in a search, apple will be ignored.

  • To search for optional terms, use OR (for example, apples OR oranges).

    IMPORTANT: The OR is case-sensitive when used to indicate optional search terms.

  • To exclude search terms, use a minus sign (-) in front of the term you want to exclude (for example, apples -oranges will find results containing apples but not oranges).

  • To search for an exact phrase or word, put quotation marks (“) around the phrase or word.

  • Common words such as “a,” “the,” and “is” are ignored.

  • The base form of a search term is used when searching (for example, a search for “driving” will match “drive,” “drives,” and “driven”).
