Proximity Search Type

The proximity search type is supported by the GET /{custid}/titles endpoint. It can be used with any of the search fields. Proximity searching is a way to search for two or more search terms that occur within five words of one another in the order than the search terms are presented. "Near" search is not allowed. Proximity search only supports within 5 ordered words. For example, use searchtype=proximity and search=brown dog to return results this is a brown dog and this dog is really brown.
