Search field, type in your search criteria (ex. leaders Russian

search tips below.
- Browse through search
results. Note that they are broken
down into categories such as images, biographies, event, quotations,
etc. See additional resources
listed at the bottom of the page.
- If your search did not
return any results, make sure the spelling of all words is accurate.
- By default, the search
returns records that contain all of the words in your search string. For
example, a search for china japan korea returns all records with
the words China, Japan, and Korea.
- If you want to find all
records that contain China, Japan, or Korea, you can use the
"or" keyword: china or japan or korea.
- To exclude certain
words, the "-" symbol can be used. For example, to find all
records that have China and Japan, but not Korea, try china japan
- If you are looking for
an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in quotation marks. For example, a
search using "united nations" will return all
records with that exact phrase.
- The search automatically
adds a wildcard to the end of each word. For example, a search for president
will return all records with president, presidents, presidential, etc. To
turn this feature off, put quotes around each word: "president".
- The search is not case- or
accent-sensitive. For example, a search for César Chávez will
return the same results as a search for cesar chavez.
