these standards while older browsers generally don't. In particular,

other browsers do. Your choice of browser may be out of your hands,

Basic Search: Searches the main citation fields in the database.
You can enter multiple search parameters into this text box.
Operators (AND, OR, NOR) are not required but can be used.
Use words that are like to be in the citation and use terms that are descriptive
for what you are looking for. The search accounts for the possibility of plurals
and other alternate word endings.
For example "rapids" will bring back results that have the word "rapid" in it.
Searching on "river rapids" will narrow the search down to publications containing both terms.
Searches are case insensitive.
Advanced Search: Select the field you would like to search on from the drop down list
on the left. Enter a search term in the field to the right.
You may fill in search criteria in any of the search boxes, however, you
do not have to fill in every search box. Leaving a search box blank does
not limit the data being retrieved. To add additional search boxes, if needed,
click on the 'Add' button.
