To understand a bit about how searching works, consider the following things:
Searching strategies below can be used on combination with each other.
Double Quotes (restriction of phrase matching): Using quotes around a search term will limit the results to those words being found directly next to each other in the results. Searching will take place anywhere in the title, description, transcript, and metadata.
AND, OR, NEAR, +, - (Boolean operators): 1. operators must be in CAPS; 2. plus and minus signs must have a space before them.
Field Qualifications: the search box can be used to directly narrow a search to a particular field. There is NO space between the colon and the search term.
Truncation and Wild Card: asterisks and question marks can be used to offer options when you want to expand a search for word ending variability
Range Queries: you can use a range of dates to narrow down searches prior to waiting for search results to filter
