If you use '+' at the start of a word, that word will be present in the search results.

*eg. Harry +Potter*

*Search results will contain 'Potter'.*

If you use '-' at the start of a word, that word will be absent in the search results.

*eg. Harry -Potter*

*Search results will not contain 'Potter'.*

If you use 'AND' between 2 words, then both those words will be present in the search results.

*eg. Harry AND Potter*

*Search results will contain both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.*

If you use 'OR' between 2 words, then either or both of those words will be present in the search results.

*eg. 'Pot*er'*

*Search results will contain words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er', such as 'Potter'.*
