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.

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.
This publication of an internee's personal diaries will expand our understanding of the civilian internment experience in Australia during World War II, through the words of a Japanese internee who spent four years behind the barbed wire at Loveday.
The title of this book refers to the dyed red coats that were provided to Japanese and other internees in Australia.
Miyakatsu Koike worked in 1941 for a Japanese bank in Indonesia (at the time known as the Dutch East Indies). When Japan entered World War II, he was arrested by Dutch authorities and, eventually, transferred to Australia's Loveday - the largest World War II internment camp in the country. Koike remained in Loveday until February 1946, and wrote a diary of his experiences during the war.
