If you have only one keyword, then it is best to use the "Basic Search."  Select "Anywhere" from the menu and type in a keyword, such as "derivatives." 

If you have more than one keyword, then it is best to use the "Advanced Search.:"  Select "Anywhere" and combine words and terms using and, or, not, such as "derivatives" and "taxation."
