Search Hints

 

You can type search terms into one or more boxes.

 

For date searches use  >  for “after”; use  <  for “before”; use a colon for a range (1990:1995)

 

Use the asterisk * for truncation.  The query psycholog* will retrieve records containing the works “psychology”, “psychologists”, “psychological”, etc.


If you type more than one word in a box, the words are searched as a PHRASE unless you separate them with Boolean operators. The query paul monette will not find records where the name appears as Monette, Paul unless you use the AND operator &: paul & monette

 

Use the OR operator  / for alternatives (synonyms, variant spellings). The query lawyer / attorney will find records containing either of those terms.

Use the NOT operator ! to narrow your search by excluding terms you don't want: psycholog* ! freud* will retrieve records containing terms beginning with "psycholog" but will then exclude records which also contain terms beginning with "freud".

 

 

 




REMEMBER:
* for truncation: psycholog*
& for AND: monette & paul
/ for OR: lawyer / attorney
! for NOT: psychology ! freud*
