Our search has the following Google-type functionality:

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'.*

NOTE: AND will only work with single words not phrases.

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

*eg. 'Harry OR Potter'*

*Search results will contain just 'Harry', or just 'Potter', or both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.*

NOTE: OR will only work with single words not phrases.

If you use 'NOT' before a word, that word will be absent in the search results. (This is the same as using the minus symbol).

*eg. 'Harry NOT Potter'*

*Search results will not contain 'Potter'.*

NOTE: NOT will only work with single words not phrases.

If you use double quotation marks around words, those words will be present in that order.

*eg. "Harry Potter"*

*Search results will contain 'Harry Potter', but not 'Potter Harry'.*

NOTE: "" cannot be combined with AND, OR & NOT searches.

If you use '*' in a word, it performs a wildcard search, as it signifies any number of characters. (Searches cannot start with a wildcard).

*eg. 'Pot*er'*

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