Basic Search Tips
Here are some basic search tips on the coming frames. Stay up on your notes and follow along with the searches to get your practice.
+, -, and " "
1. The + will make sure that the following word WILL be in your search results. The - will make sure that the following word WILL NOT be in your search.
2. The " " around a group of words will make sure that those words appear exactly like that in your search.
First and Capitals
3. Type the most important words of your search first. This will help the search engine find the most helpful source.
4. Only use capital letters in your search when you want to find an exact match for that proper noun
* and " " +/- Combinations
5. The asterisk * can be used as a wildcard and combining with the roots of words can provide you with variations in the spelling.
6. Combining " " and a + or - may help you in narrowing your search more effectively.
AND, NOT, OR, and ( OR )
7. When trying to narrow your search using AND, NOT, and OR use all caps. Some search engines will only work if you do this, so it is good to get into the practice.
8. When searching a phrase with OR put the phrase in parentheses.
