Advanced Keyword Search Tips
Multiple Words When searching multiple words the system will automatically suppply the Boolean "and" operator between each word; multiple words entered for the search will all occur somewhere in the retrieved records though not necessarily in the order entered. Both examples on the right will retrieve the same results.
* The asterisk ('*') matches any number ofnon-space characters, starting at the specified position in the word. For example, "inter*" will match "internal" "internet", and "international". The '*' wildcard may only appear after at least two characters. The '*' wildcard may also be embedded in a search string. For example, "colo*r" would match both "color" and "colour". ? You may use a question mark ('?') to replace a single character anywhere within a word.
Field limits may be specified by selecting a field limit from the selection list in the form above. These limits appear before the word or phrase to be searched. A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).
Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.
