How do I get better search results?
Be specific with your search terms. If your search is unsuccessful,
refine your search terms. To narrow your search, use the advanced search
page to fill in date range, author, headline, or subject fields. The more
information you provide, the more precise your search results will be. To
get more results, select different search words or a longer date range.
Using AND narrows the search, using OR broadens the search, and using NOT
excludes unwanted items. The NOT operator is useful in refining an initial
query that returns a broad list of results. WITHIN and ADJ controls how
close your search terms must be to one another. ADJ also checks that words
found are in the same order as in your search expression. For more detail,
visit Search Tips.
What part of the article is actually searched for my search term?
The basic search includes the full text of the entire article, as well as
text from the headline, author field, date range, subject terms, etc. For
more detail on getting good search results, visit
