Three Search Tips

Exact Phrase Searching

  • Use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase: "United States" or "hydraulic fracturing".

Truncations (aka wildcards)

  • Use an * to search for multiple word endings: A search for sustain* will also find results with the words sustainable and sustainability.

Boolean Operators (ANDs, ORs, NOTs)

  • Use Boolean Operators to build more specific searches in Advanced Search mode.
