To search all of Digital Archive, use the search box at the top of each page
Here are some search hints:
What is searched in the general keyword search
The word(s) you enter in the search box will be searched against the title, author, subject abstract, and series fields of each item's record.
Use an asterisk (*) after a word stem to get all hits having words starting with that root, for example:
will retrieve selects, selector, selectman, selecting.
The search engine automatically expands words with common endings to include plurals, past tenses ...etc.
To search using multiple words as a phrase, put quotation marks (") around the phrase.
Exact word match
Put a plus (+) sign before a word if it MUST appear in the search result.
Eliminate items with unwanted words
Put a minus (-) sign before a word if it should not appear in the search results.
The following Boolean operators can be used to combine terms. Note that they must be CAPITALIZED !
AND - to limit searches to find items containing all words or phrases combined with this operator, e.g.
will retrieve all items that contain BOTH the words "notes" and "logic".
OR - to enlarge searches to find items containing any of the words or phrases surrounding this operator
will retrieve all items that contain EITHER the words "notes" or "logic".
NOT - to exclude items containing the word following this operator, e.g.
will retrieve all items that contain the word "notes" EXCEPT those also containing the word "logic".
Parentheses can be used in the search query to group search terms into sets, and operators can then be applied to the whole set, e.g.
