Dates of Coverage Current
Truncation or Wildcard

* replaces zero or more characters at beginning, in the middle, or at the end of a word or root word

? replaces any single character within or at the end of a word or root word

CAUTION:  Words retrieved using truncation or wildcard characters are ignored when the database sorts results based on "relevance," causing potentially useful items to appear at the bottom of the results list. When using truncation, consider sorting results by "date" instead of "relevance," or avoid using truncation and use the Boolean "or" connector to retrieve variant words (sample search:  market or markets or marketing).
