    The wildcard is an advanced search technique that can be used to maximize your search results in library databases. Wildcards are used in search terms to represent one or more other characters.

    The two most commonly used wildcards are:
    • An asterisk (*) may be used to specify any number of characters. It is typically used at the end of a root word, when it is referred to as "truncation." This is great when you want to search for variable endings of a root word.
      • For example: searching for educat* would tell the database to look for all possible endings to that root. Results will include educate, educated, education, educational or educator.
    • A question mark (?) may be used to represent a single character, anywhere in the word. It is most useful when there are variable spellings for a word, and you want to search for all variants at once.
      • For example, searching for colo?r would return both color and colour.

    Each of the library's databases (and internet search engines) use the wildcard differently. To find out what works in your favorite database, look for the "help" link (usually along the top of the screen). A few examples are linked below.

    You might also enjoy this fun trunctation tutorial from the Colorado State University Libraries.

    • EBSCOhost Wildcard Help

      What is a wildcard? How do I use it in a search? - LibAnswers

    • Search operators and wildcards
      You can use and combine different search operators and wildcards in your search queries:

      Wildcard searches
      To perform a single character wildcard search use the "?" symbol.

      To perform a multiple character wildcard search use the "*" symbol.

      Unknown or all parts with *
      Multiple character wildcard searches with * looks for zero, one or more characters.

      So
      corrupt*
      will find corrupt, corruption, corrupted ... but not anticorruption

      *rupt
      will find corrupt or interrupt but wont find corruption or interruption...

      *rupt*
      will find corrupt, corruption, anticorruption, interrupt and interruption ...

      You can also use the wildcard searches in the middle of a term:
      co*upt
      will find corupt or corrupt

      Single character wildcard
      The single character wildcard search looks for terms that match that with the single character replaced.

      For example, to search for "text" or "test" you can use the search:
      te?t

      Boolean operators
      Boolean operators allow terms to be combined through logic operators. Lucene supports AND, "+", OR, NOT and "-" as Boolean operators(Note: Boolean operators must be ALL CAPS).

      AND
      search engine
      will find all documents which contains the word engine AND the word search

      search AND engine
      would return the same results

      OR
      search OR research
      will find all documents which contains the word search or the word research

      Exclusion with - or NOT
      The "-" or prohibit operator excludes documents that contain the term after the "-" symbol:

      search -engine
      or
      search NOT engine
      or
      search AND NOT engine

      will find all documents which contain the word search and do not contain the word engine.
