How to Format Search Terms

Your searches will yield better results if you keep the following points in mind:

  • Common words such as and, not, and the are ignored by the search engine.
  • Case of letters is ignored. For example, Civil and civil are treated the same.
  • Diacritic characters (accent marks, in non-English text) and other special characters produce inaccurate results, so plain (unaccented) letters should be substituted for letters with diacritics.

Search for a Phrase

Do not put quotation marks around the phrase you are searching.

When searching for a phrase, enter the words in the order they are most likely to occur. The order of search words does not affect the scope of the search results, but it will affect the order of their display.

Too Many Results

If a search generates too many results, try using more specific terms.

Important terms for each collection can be found in the Subject lists available from most collection home pages. The lists also link to related records within that collection.

Bibliographic records contain links to related Subjects and Authors/Creators: Click on the terms under those headings.

Too Few Results

If a search generates too few results, consult the Subject lists available in most collections for other search terms. The lists also link to related records within that collection.

Bibliographic records contain links to related Subjects and Authors/Creators: Click on the terms under those headings.

Because language changes, be sure to use search terms used at the time the collection materials were created, even if those terms are now obsolete. For example, the following historical terms will produce more results than their modern-day counterparts:
