In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.

Lecture and Book Launch
Locomotives that Galvanised the Nation by Tim Fischer
For a century, from 1850 to 1950, steam locomotive haulage dominated Australia’s various rail systems. Rail networks expanded and steam locomotives traversed the country during critical stages of our nation’s development, including transporting soldiers to fields of conflict as we fought in two world wars.
Join Tim Fischer for a journey through the great tapestry of rail networks to understand how the nation was galvanised with economic growth delivered by steam. The event will include an official launch of the book by the Hon. Dr Brett Mason, Chair of Council, National Library of Australia.
