Search is case-insensitive. "DOG" and "dog" will return the same number of results.
Use Boolean connectors and parentheses to make your search more specific (e.g. "dog or (pet and (not cat))")
Leaving out connectors and simply listing keywords implies an "or" between the words (e.g. "dog or sidewalk or nuisance" = dog or (sidewalk or nuisance)".
If you want to search for an exact phrase, put it in quotation marks.
Do not use "/" to separate words in a phrase (a la AltaVista). This search interprets "/" as "or". (E.G. "attractive/nuisance" = "attractive or nuisance", NOT "attractive nuisance").
If the search does not appear to be working correctly, please contact WHMCKC@umkc.edu.
