Operator What It Does
~ (tilda) searches for synonyms
inurl:gov; inurl:org; inurl:edu searches only these domains
filetype:pdf; filetype:xls; filetype:ppt searches for only these types of documents
date..date (2008..2009) searches for documents relevant to those years
site:carleton.edu searches for documents only at Carleton's domain

Example:
~hunger "twin cities" ~suburban inurl:org filetype:pdf 2005..2009
