CONNECTING TO THE RESOURCES
Say you are looking for resources about vertical farming. Running a search using the keywords "vertical farming" together will yield only 2 results.
Running a search for only the word "vertical" will yield 7 results, including ones with they key words "vertical farm" and "vertical garden."
Another strategy is to remove the suffix.
Instead of searching "farming", enter the word "farm".
Your results will include "farm", "farming", "farmer", "farmland", etc...
If you know the topic that you want to search,
