Smart Searching

   Search Tips:

  • Combine Keywords such as a scientific term and a current issue in science to create a "search string" 
  • Search for exact phrases by putting quotations marks around them, for example: "atomic radius"
  • Search for files and scans using " filetype:pdf" 
  • Limit results by domain: .gov  .edu  .pe 
  • Limit to terms in the title of a site or article with "intitle:"
  • Weed out irrelevant results by using a minus sign in front the word(s) that are mucking up the search
  • Get all versions of a word with truncation (*) For example: Child* 
  • Get variations of a word with wild cards (?) For example: Analy?e

Sample Search String:

  • "amnesty international"    iran   intitle:execution*    site:http://.gov    "cultur* impact"    -oil
