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.



The American game "Bingo" is an early twentieth-century development which evolved from the earlier European and American game called "Lotto." Lotto is still popular in Europe but the name "bingo" has stuck in the US. Now often played as a public fund-raiser in church and club halls, bingo is also produced as a game for the home. This example dates from mid-twentieth century.
