Use the following form to search our entire website (including PDF documents!) Type in what you're looking for in the "keywords" box and click the Search button. Use the form controls to tailor your results.
Help with searchs:
Results are returned in order of calculated relevance
That is, #1 is the most relevant document for the search keywords entered.
Searches are not case sensitive
Keywords will match any case. For example, typing "search" will return all documents containing the words "search", "Search," or "SEARCH".
Use quotation marks around phrases
Add quotation marks around phrases to find words which must appear adjacent to each other, for example, "our pledge to you". Otherwise, the search results will include the word "our", "pledge", "to", and the word "you", but not necessarily in that order. The words could appear anywhere, and in any order, within the document.
When multiple words are entered, "and" is assumed
For example, searching for "rebel flag" will return all documents containing both the words "rebel" and "flag". Separate words with "or" to change that behavior. Searching for "rebel or flag", will return all documents containing either the words "rebel" or "flag".
Use multiple words
Use multiple words when performing your search. The search will return more refined results from several descriptive words than from a single word. For example, typing "our free service" will return more relevant results than typing only "service".
You may also use not to exclude words from a search set. For example, searching for "wine not zinfandel" will return all documents containing "wine" but not mentioning "zinfandel".
Use "wildcards" when you're not sure
Wildcard searches can expand the number of matches for a particular request. The "*" character is used as the wildcard character.
For instance, searching for "wh*" will find the words "what", "why", "when", "whether", and any other words that start with "wh".
Searching for "*her*" will find the words "here", "whether", "together", "gathering", and any other word that contains "her" anywhere in the word.
Wildcards may be combined with quotes in phrases. "wh* are" will find the phrases "where are", "what are", "why are", etc.
Use parentheses to clarify complex searches
Parentheses can be used to specify the order of precedence for search terms. For example, searching for "pilsner (hops or not saaz)" will return documents containing "pilsner", and "hops" or anything but "saaz".
