Smart Searching Tips

To get different results, change your key words: 

Try varying your searches, changing the key words you use.

No results? Search more broadly: 

Try your search using fewer terms, or change to broader terms: for example, use the term religion (broad), instead of Christianity (more specific).

Too many results? Narrow down by adding something:

When you add more word to your search, use "and" in between: rituals and customs

Use quotation marks to enclose a phrase:

"Greek mythology"

Use the *  (asterisk) wildcard:

The asterisk helps you search several versions of one key word: 

religi* = religion, religions, religious, etc.
