Combine, expand, or limit your search through the operators AND, OR, NOT. Please remember to write the operators with capital letters.
You can combine more search words with AND, but you do not have to, as the system automatically perceives a space between search words as AND.
Use * as a wildcard character to search for variants of a word, for instance pest* (pester, pesticide, pestilence, etc.)
Use ? as a wildcard to replace a single letter, for instance wom?n (woman and women).
Use (...) parenthesis to group query words, for instance Government AND (democracy OR cabinet responsibility).
Use "..." quotation marks, if you want to search for a compound term, for instance "global warming".
Use the filtering features after the search to limit for type of material, author, subject, year, library, etc. You find the filter options to the left of the results list - or at the bottom of the screen, if you use a telephone or tablet.
