LBJ Library Educational Materials Search Page
Use the form below to search for documents in this web containing specific words or combinations of words. The text search engine will display a weighted list of matching documents, with better matches shown first. Each list item is a link to a matching document; if the document has a title it will be shown, otherwise only the document's file name is displayed. A brief explanation of the query language is available, along with examples.
Many files available for download from the LBJ Website are in the Adobe Portable Document Format. These files must be viewed with a PDF Reader available free from the Adobe Website.
The LBJ Telephone Conversation Descriptions are not included
in this search. The search engine for the telephone conversations can be
accessed from the Descriptions
