Searching is simple: just type what you're looking for in the search box, hit Enter or click the Search button. This search function is powered by Google and it will search predetermined sites on the web for content that's relevant to your search.

The following tips can help you make the most of your searches. In our examples we'll use square brackets [ ] to signal a search query.

  • The more specific you are in your search, the better your search results will be.
  • Describe what you are looking for in as few words as possible & keep it simple.
  • Choose and use descriptive words. The more unique the word is the more likely you are to get relevant results.
  • Use quotation marks '' " around your query to search for an exact phrase. Example: ["lincoln k"]
    If you search without the quotation marks, Google will search for lincoln AND k, and will pull up results accordingly.
  • To search a specific timeframe use daterange: in your query. Example: [cadillac daterange:1929-1935]
  • Think how the results page you are looking for will be written. A search engine is not a human, it is a program that matches the words you give to pages on the web. Use the words that are most likely to appear on the results page. For example, instead of saying [ cheap classic ], say [ inexpensive classic ]. The query [where can i buy a classic car? ] is very clear to a person, but the document that gives the answer may not have used those words. Instead, use the query [ buy a classic car ] or similar, because it is more likely that is what the results page will say.
