- The use of double quotes (" ") around a phrase may be used to make the search results more precise. Use of double quotes yields entries in which the words appear adjacent to one another and in the exact order in which you typed them. For example, searching for the phrase Foreign Exchange yields any entries that contain both words. Using double quotes around the phrase "Foreign Exchange" yields any entry that contains the exact phrase. When a period (.) is integral to a search term, it is best to enclose the term in double quotes, for example "St. Louis" or "Ford Motor Co."
- You can limit your subject search by choosing one module of the database to search. You can do this by clicking on the appropriate box in the dark blue band near the top of the page where it says Select Module. The modules are National, International or Regional, State, or Local. The default search searches all three modules. This search is useful in finding local affiliate chapters of a national organization.
- Another way to limit a subject search is to select a broad subject category to search. You can do this under Subject/Any word search by using the drop down box labeled subject category. Categories include cultural organizations, educational organizations, and social welfare organizations.
