When searching for a topic on music:
1. Try starting with a keyword search, such as Music and Italy. This will produce a list of resources that have both words in the title.

3. If you need to remove unneccessary results then try for example, Music not Italy. This will prevent unneeded information about Italy and focus on Music.
