Search Tips

No matter where you search there are three good techniques you can use to improve your search results:

  • Boolean searching
  • stemming
  • phrase searching

Boolean Searching

This involves using the words AND and OR within your search.

AND: narrows a search (Egypt AND art).

OR: broadens a search and can be used to describe multiple terms (funeral OR burial)

Here’s a brief video on using AND and OR.

Stemming

Also called truncation, used to find multiple endings of a word. Put an asterisk (*) at the end of the root word:

Egypt* finds: Egypt, Egyptian, Egyptians

Phrase Searching

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase. Quotation marks will keep the words in the order you type to make your results more relevant. Make sure the phrase you’re using is one that is used in discussing your topic:

“New Kingdom”, “Valley of the Kings”
