in double quotes will retrieve items with those exact words or phrase exactly as

Logic Control Words
OR - search supports the logical "OR" operator. This will search
for records that contain either one or both of the search terms on either side of
the logic control word.
Example: planning or zoning
Returns: all records that contain just the word "planning" or just the word "zoning"
or records that contain both
AND NOT - search supports the logical "AND NOT" operator. This
will search for all records that, within each single field, contain the first search
term, but excludes any items that contain the second search term.
Example: public and not housing
Returns: any records that contain the word "public" but do not include the word
"housing", within each single field
