I'm sure that this has been answered several times, or at least something similar.

The problem is that I have forgotten how to perform a search.  I wish to search my collection of encyclopedias and dictionaries (I can search the collection ok, but it's what follows that gives me the problem) for specific info about Egyptian papyrus.

If I say Egypt AND papyrus I get too many irrelevant results.

Please forgive the forgetfulness and clueless nature of this question.

Thanks

This page: http://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help will give you just about all you need and more.

I might suggest Egypt NEAR papyrus or Egypt WITHIN 15 WORD papyrus as searches that will give you better results. As it is the AND just means that both words come up in the same article, some proximity parameters will help with the search.
