- "and" between
words is assumed; that is, documents will be retrieved that have
all the specified words. If you wish to find all the documents that
have any word, use "or" between your search words.
- To exclude a word, use not. For example,
cat not dog will find all documents that contain cat but not dog.
- To truncate a word, use an asterisk (*) at the end. For
example, the search "comput*" would retrieve documents that have the
words "computer", "computing", "computation", etc.
- You may use parentheses to nest search terms. For example,
(cat or mouse) not dog will find all documents that contain
either cat or mouse, but not dog.
