Additional Search Techniques
Entering a few key words will often yield satisfactory results, but learning a few common search techniques will help users quickly find what they are looking for.
Wildcard searches find variations on word roots. To conduct a wildcard search, type an asterisk at the end of the search word.
For example, "correction*" will find the words "correction", "corrections", or "correctional". This type of search will ensure that you also retrieve the plural forms of the words you search for.
