When researching using Google you can narrow the search with these tips:

  • Put quotes("" ) around the term to search only that phrase
  • To eliminate a word, use NOT 
  • Capital letters and articles are ignored unless in quotes
  • The root form of a word looks for all forms of the word
  • Use a tilde (~) to search with other word of similiar meaning
  • Putting a plus (+) in front of word to keep it exactly as it is
  • The word OR allows grouping of two words or phrases
