'''Customizing Index Term Searches'''
  
You can also search Index Terms using the [[Advanced Search: Build Your Own Search|Build Your Own Segment Search]] feature on the Power Search form.  Choose the "Terms" segment and type in all or part of an index term.  This approach searches the display text of the index term, so a search for TERMS(Africa) will retrieve documents indexed with the Africa term and the West Africa term. If you select a term using the Index Term Lookup Tool, you do not have to worry about this type of ambiguity. Searching on the TERMS segment allows you to be more specific when limiting your search by term relevance.  Because the index terms always appear followed by a percent relevance score you can search for specific scores and use wild cards for ranges.  For example, searching on TERMS(africa 90%) will return documents with a relevance score of exactly 90% for the africa term.  Searching on TERMS(africa 9*%) will return all documents with rankings of 90-99 for the Africa term.
