Search Tips

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.


In July, 1953 a group of children posed for an Associated Press photographer in Detroit, Michigan. Although the photograph may have been staged, it certainly looks as if the children are playing a real game of Monopoly. Some are smiling, others deep in thought. They appear to be playing on the front step at the doorway to a home--commonly known as the stoop. You can even see a doormat, with Monopoly money stored on it--just to the right of the actual game board. The photograph helps document Monopoly's popularity, just under twenty years after its introduction.
