By default, search terms are linked by the or function. This means that:
searches for documents that contain either the term Kindergarten, or refer to the municipality of Kilchberg.
When the + symbol is used before a term, only search results including that term will appear. When the - symbol is used before a term, it will be excluded from the search results.
This is demonstrated by the following two examples:
+Kindergarten +Fröbel (all search results include both Kindergarten and Fröbel)
+Kindergarten -Fröbel (Search results will include the term Kindergarten but not Fröbel).
To perform a multiple character wildcard search use the * symbol.
