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.


Photographs often convey simple joyful family moments, and families save them for this very reason. The little girl in this photo is smiling as she leads her mother or grandmother toward a pin the tail on the donkey game attached to the wall nearby. One tail already pinned near the donkey's nose suggests that the girl already had her turn. Pin the tail games probably originated as folk games, with animals drawn up on sheets tacked to the wall. Today magnets and velcro take the place of more dangerous pins.
