Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk. '*' for 1-5
characters, '**' for open-ended truncation, '?' to replace a single
character anywhere within a word.
Examples : environment* polic*, comput**, wom?n
Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words.

Example : (alaska or canada) and (adventure and not vacation)
Use "near" to specify words close to each other, in any order.

|Field limits||A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).|
|Grouping||Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.|
