Suggested Search Terms
Suggested Search Terms:
Keyword vs. Subject Definition: A keyword is just a word. It is not a subject and has nothing to do with what that word is “about.” For instance, if you conduct a keyword search for the word “dog,” your results will include all of the records for items that actually contains the word “dog.” (ie: prairie dogs, dogs of war, etc.) If you conduct a subject search for “dog,” your results will include all of the items about man’s best friend “dogs.” So, a keyword search will only search for a word, a subject search will search for items about that word.
