Truncation

Truncation allows you to get more out of your search term.

Often times the databases do not understand plurals.

For example:

A search of OIL SPILL might give you 70 Results.

A search of OIL SPILLS might give you 186 Results.

However a search of OIL SPILL* will give 203 Results.

 



Truncation Symbols Vary:

Library Catalog and Most Databases is: * (asterisk)

Lexis Nexus is: ! (Exclamation Point)
