About the Forms
Basic Search provides a quick, no-fuss way to search by keywords or phrases, but you can also use it to create more sophisticated searches.
Guided Search provides easy-to-use fields that allow you to specify keywords and phrases and combine them without the need to remember special symbols or punctuation.
Advanced Search gives you the most control up-front. You can achieve a high degree of precision by employing Boolean expressions and targeting your search.
Proximity Search lets you specify the distance between words in your search. Proximity search syntax can also be incorporated into advanced searches.
