  • An arrangement to purchase a flower vase from the 19th century…

Search Tips
  • Common words are usually overlooked during a Google search, so if a common word like "how" or "the" is essential to your search, put a "+" in front of it.
  • Enter a short question, such as "what time is it?"

Search by specific type of file by writing filetype:<name_of_type><subject>

  • If a set of words belongs together in a phrase, you should put“quotes” around those words or dashes-in-between-them. This is great for when you know a few lyrics to a song and want to search them to find the song\'s name.
