Punctuation and spacing must match entries exactly since this is string searching. Uppercase OR, and NOT serve as Boolean operators. To anchor a match at the beginning of an entry a caret must precede the word (e.g., ^classical finds only titles that begin with "Classical"). To find a word anywhere in an entry surround the word with the @ sign (e.g., @RAC@ finds only RAC, not RACF, VeteraChr, etc.).
