SEARCH TIPS FOR BASIC & ADVANCED SEARCHING
Lower-case letters will find matches of capitalized words also. For example, computer will find matches for computer, Computer and COMPUTER.
Apostrophe: When typing in a search term, the apostrophe can be used Ex: lily's OR left out Ex: lilys
The ? character or * character (asterisk) can be placed at the left, right or middle of a portion of a word, but can never be used more than once in a text string. (Ex: multipl? OR multipl* will locate multiple, multiples, multiply, multiplying etc.)
The # symbol can be used to find variant spellings in cases where one version of the word has one more chararacter than another version. For example, colo#r finds both color and colour; and arch#eology finds both archaeology and archeology.
The ! character can be used to find variant spellings in cases where a single character can vary. For example, wom!n retrieves both woman and women.
The % symbol, followed by a number, can be placed between two words to indicate that you want the words to appear within a particular distance from each other. For example, england %3 ballads retrieves Ballads of England , Ballads of Merry Olde England and England and Her Ballads.
The ! character, followed by a number, can be placed between two words to indicate that you want the words to appear within a particular distance from each other, and in the same order in which you type the words. In this case, england !3 ballads retrieves Ballads of England and Ballads of Merry Olde England but not England and Her Ballads.
