Search Tips:

You may search for complete or partial words and phrases.

You may use as many words as you want in a phrase surrounded quotes and only articles with that entire phase will be returned e.g. "Bradford High School" won't return any articles unless all three words are there in that sequence.

To make sure both words are there use a plus sign (+) e.g. Bradford+High will return results with those words in that sequence.

To get an article with either word use the pipe ( | ) e.g. Bradford | High will return results with either of those words, not necessarily both.
