In Sherlock, the MLA database, or PRISMA, use an asterisk to truncate a word and allow for different endings. HOWEVER, do not use the asterisk to truncate words in the HAPI database (you would run the same search in HAPI as mexic mural).
Use quotation marks to enclose a phrase or words that must appear together in a document.
Use AND to connect words that must appear in a document
Use OR if only one word (or set of words) must appear in a document
Use NOT to exclude words or terms from a search
(Combining search terms with AND, OR, NOT is called Boolean searching. There is an explanation here.)
