Quick tips on searching

Refining your search

To better refine your search, use the following techniques:

Requiring or excluding terms

The site search uses a simple query syntax that corresponds to Boolean operators:

Search operator
Boolean equivalent
Default; does not require any special symbols
OR
+
AND
-
NOT
Phrase operator: enclose the phrase
with quotation marks
ADJ [adjacent]

The Verity search returns results sorted with the “best” matches listed at the top. Verity determines which results are better than others by weighing your query terms—automatically—based on how frequently they occur in text. More unique terms are weighted higher than more common ones.
