Hi all,

Um, folks, are you putting your search string in quotes? This may be where your problem lies. When using a search field, if you place what you are looking for in quotes, yes plain old quotes, e.g. "Catherine Coulter" (sp) you will get only those things where the exact string is found. If you put "Gallow" in quotes, it will search for "Gallow" and no other variants. Try that method and I think you'll be much, much happier with the search feature.

Hint, hint, this works for any search field from Google to Overdrive. Happy searching.

Ann P.
