Tips for research on the Internet

There are many search engines, and some of them offer tutorials on how to use a search engine efficiently:

Google Search Tutorials

+ (plus sign)  all words connected with + will be searched
-- (Minus sign)   exclude a word that gives too many irrelevant results
helps you retrieve results for two related items at the same time
”abcde“ (quotation marks) search on an exact phrase
~  (tilda)  in front of a word - searches that word and synonym
