 Advanced Search Information
  • Searches are not case-sensitive.

  • You may enter multiple keywords, such as differential equations. This search will produce exactly the same results as differential AND equations (implicit AND).

  • You may use any of the basic boolean operators (AND, OR, and NOT). Please note that boolean operators are always typed in upper case (i.e. AND is a boolean operator, and and is the word and).

  • You may also use parentheses. For example, (Marti OR Maceo) AND independence.

  • Wildcards are also supported. You can use the asterisk (*) as a suffix and/or prefix in keywords. For example, enter math* to find documents with keywords such as math, or mathematics, or Mathias.

  • You may also use strings anywhere words are expected. A string is a sequence of words enclosed by double quotes, such as "the volume of a sphere". Please note that when using strings, you are searching for files which contain the string exactly (but still case-insensitive).
