KnowItNow Academic logo Back to Tips for searching the Library Catalog

Searching by word roots (truncation)

Truncation allows for the retrieval of words with alternate endings.

example ---> insur (finds insurance, insurability, insure)
example ---> legal econ (finds legal economics)

This catalog does automatic truncation EXCEPT:

When you are searching in the WORDS option, you must type an * at the end of the term to activate truncation searching.

WORDS example ---> law* (finds law, lawn, laws, lawyer, etc.)

To prevent automatic truncation, type a vertical bar | at the end of the term.

example ---> Nation| (finds Nation, but not National)
