Search Hints
All Fields 'phrase' searches may find more records than a Boolean AND search. This is because phrase searches are done as Boolean OR searches, but will return records in relevance-ranked order. Truncation is not supported in searches with more than one word. Because authors are entered in the database in the form Last, First and Last F., the recommended approach is to search for Last, First OR Last, F. Do not use truncation in author searches.
