Search Help

You can specify one or more search terms. OpenMind will return each entry which matches all of the search terms specified.

For example, if you specify a search term "dog", OpenMind will return all entries that contain the word "dog". If you specify the multiple search terms "cat" and "dog", search will return all entries that contain both the word cat and the word dog.
