Search engines and some other searchable resources often have a list of stop words, common words like "the" or "and" that are ignored when searching. Academic Video Online does not have a list of stop words, so if you search for fish and chips, you will get all records contains the words 'fish' and 'and' and 'chips', instead of items that contain the phrase "fish and chips", so if you're searching for a phrase, use quotation marks around it/
