When constructing a search, ask yourself these questions...
Truncating words (replacing part of a word with an * symbol) will retrieve all alternative words. For example, sustain* will retrieve sustainable, sustainability etc.
Internal truncation (also called wildcards and often using the ? symbol) will search for alternative spellings. For example, behavi?r will retrieve behavior or behaviour.
Once you begin searching FindIt@ you will most likely need to limit your results. Consider these options:
Combine search terms using Connectors, also called Boolean operators.
AND: e.g. prohibition AND Volstead Act, this will retrieve results containing BOTH terms and narrow your search.
OR: e.g. prohibition OR illegal alcohol, this will retrieve results with EITHER and will broaden your search
NOT: e.g. temperance movement NOT mafia, this will retrieve references with temperance movement and will not include mafia and will narrow your search.
