Use the form below to search for documents on containing specific words or combinations of words. The text search engine will display a weighted list of matching documents, with better matches shown first. Each list item is a link to a matching document; if the document has a title it will be shown, otherwise only the document's file name is displayed. A brief explanation of the query language is available, along with examples. I have added a superb section that is the help file of a desk bar utility called Dave's Quick Search. It is an excellent tool and it can be found here>>

Query Language

The text search engine allows queries to be formed from arbitrary Boolean expressions containing the keywords AND, OR, and NOT, and grouped with parentheses. For example:

  • information retrieval

  • finds documents containing 'information' or 'retrieval'

  • information and retrieval

  • finds documents containing both 'information' and 'retrieval'

  • information not retrieval

  • finds documents containing 'information' but not 'retrieval'

  • (information not retrieval) and WAIS

  • finds documents containing 'WAIS', plus 'information' but not 'retrieval'

  • web*
