Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.



Taking note of the phenomenal success of Mattel's Barbie, the Ideal Toy company offered its Mitzi doll in 1961. Like Barbie, Mitzi stood just 11.5 inch tall, and also like Barbie, Mitzi had an extensive wardrobe for her many activities. Ideal offered Mitzi for just a short while. When Ideal introduced Tammy, a more wholesome-looking competitor to Barbie in 1962, Mitzi was no long available.
