Containing
Finds Index Terms that contain the text you have entered in any part of the term (e.g., competition law would find ENFORCEMENT OF COMPETITION LAW)
Starting With
Finds Index Terms that begin with the text you have entered (e.g., competition would find COMPETITION INSTITUTIONS)
Exactly Matching
Finds Index Terms that exactly match the text you have entered (e.g., competition law would only find COMPETITION LAW)
Note: The AND connector cannot be used with the Starting With or Exactly Matching options. If you are searching for an Index Term that contains the word "and," use the & character. For example, if you are searching for landlord and tenant, enter landlord & tenant.
