When you are searching for a phrase, surround it in quotation marks. For example, "global warming". The system will prioritize the search to locate the phrase.
Note: The graphic representation of the query box is not the same as the one for UML Library Search.
Here are some examples:
This will search all the records containing Shakespeare and either the term, tragedy or sonnet or both.
This will retrieve the records containing the terms Shakespeare and tragedy both somewhere in a record, and in addition, all the records containing the term, sonnet.
This will search the records containing the term, Irish or Celtic, or both, but not the term, Gaelic. If () are absent in the above query, UML Library Search will first search (Celtic Not Gaelic) as below. Please note that Library Search first searches AND and NOT operators left to right, then OR operator left to right in that order when there are multiple operators in a given query.
Use "?" or "*" strategically:
E.g., wom?n to search for records that contain the strings woman, women.
E.g., type cultur* to locate words such as culture, cultural, and culturally.
