Help: Search help
- Narrowing your search – use AND to combine your search terms. For example cat AND dog will limit your results to items which contain both of your search terms.
- Widening your search – OUDA uses OR by default when you enter multiple terms. For example hat cat rat will find results which include one or more of your search terms.
- Excluding terms – use - to exclude terms. For example ice -climate would find all items about ice but would exclude any that mention climate.
- Wildcards – use ? for a single character wildcard search. For example wom?n would find items containing woman and women and so on. Use * for a multiple character wildcard search. For example cell* would find strings such as cells, cellular and cellulose.
- Search Results – results are ordered by relevance.
