  6. 6. Library of Congress Add Words to Improve Results: More words will increase the number of search results. But documents containing all of the words entered will be ranked highest.  Example: kid teacher history learn Enclose Exact Phrases in Quotes: The results will include documents containing those words in that exact order.  Examples: "civil war maps" "jackie robinson" "declaration of independence" Use a Plus Sign to Require and a Minus Sign to Exclude  Example: +washington +state -george  Retrieves documents containing the words "state" and "washington" but not "george." Capitalize Proper Nouns  Example: Library Congress  Only finds documents containing "Library" and "Congress" (but not "library" and "congress"). Try Alternate Spellings: Some proper names and common words have variant spellings (British vs. American or because of transliteration differences). Include all known spellings for the broadest search results.  Examples: Mohammad Muhammad Mohammed labor labourTips from http://www.loc.gov/help/help-lc-simple.html
