Does truncation work?

Yes, you can include the following wildcard characters in your searches:

  • ? — Enter a question mark to perform a single character wildcard search. For example, type wom?n to search for records that contain the strings woman, women, womyn, and so forth.
  • * — Enter an asterisk to perform a multiple character wildcard search. For example, type cultur* to search for records that contain strings, such as culture, cultural, and culturally.

It's important to note that the system ignores wildcard characters placed at the beginning of search terms. For example, the system treats the search terms ?aying and *aying as if you had searched for aying.
