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.


Almost as ancient as playing cards, dominoes are among the oldest tools for play. Although related to playing cards themselves--and indeed dominoes were often constructed of the same cardstock paper--dominoes are meant to represent all possible rolls of a common pair of dice. Their form, however, allows for multiple types of games as well as for the familiar domino-effect constructions. A late-nineteenth century carte de visite style photograph, undoubtedly staged in a photographer's studio, shows a little girl playing with a stack of dominoes. Although the photographer probably used the set as a prop for many children's photos, this image seems quite unusual.
