Two commonly used (but not universally used) search techniques:


Plus/Minus System

  • Use a plus [ + ] in front of words which must be in the search results      e.g., +military

  • Use a minus [ - ] in front of words to be excluded from the results       e.g., -union


    Quotes Around Phrases

  • Use double quotes [ " " ]around phrases       e.g., "War Powers Act"
