     Tips for formatting searches in Easy Search:

    •  Use key terms from the title of the exhibition and the museum holding the exhibition.
    •  "And" is always assumed between search words (mozart manuscript = mozart AND manuscript.
    • Use quotation marks around phrases ("barcelona and modernity"; "boston symphony").
    • If you know the name of the exact source you want to search, include its name in quotes in the search box ("new york times"; "washington post".
    • For "Search Within", use the default "Major U.S. and World Publications".
    • To see the publications searched, click on the "i".
