To look at individual profiles, click on "People".
Use the Search box to pinpoint an individual, a research term or any other related topic.
- Use short, single terms unless your searches are returning too many results
- When you enter more than one term, the search will look for records containing all of them unless you add the word "OR" between your terms.
- "NOT" can help limit searches -- e.g., 'jules NOT verne'
- Except for boolean operators, searches are not case-sensitive, so "Mexico" and "mexico" are equivalent
- Enclose a phrase in quotes (") to search for the whole phrase, not individual words (e.g., "protein folding") -- both leading and ending quotes are required
- Phrase searches may be combined with boolean operators: "cell biology" OR "oral biology"
- The search uses stemming by default so that close word variations will also be found (e.g., "sequence" also matches "sequences" and "sequencing"). Use the wildcard * character to match wider variation (e.g., nano* to match both nanomedicine and nanotoxicology), but note that searching uses stemmed, or shortened, versions of words, so "cogniti*" finds nothing while "cognit*" finds both cognitive and cognition
- If you're not sure of the spelling, put a ~ at the end -- e.g., steven~ finds Stephen and Stefan (as well as a few unwanted extra words)
- To match a person or unit's primary entry, enter name: Smith
