Keyword searches allow for multiple words in your search and will return all articles with the words you specify, regardless of keyword order; and will return partial word results.
Example: a search for Gab will return Gabby, Gable, Gabriola, etc.
Phrase searches will return only articles that contain the words (phrase) you specify. Partial word matches will be returned if you query a single word.
Example: a search for Gabriola Island will only return articles containing the exact phrase "Gabriola Island".
NOTE: searches are not case sensitive (a = A)
