How do I search Discover for titles that incorporate punctuation?

Where possible please do not use punctuation such as ; , / when searching Discover, add a space instead.  Otherwise the item may not be found and the filters (eg 'Print Book') will not work.

  • book called 'Either/Or' search instead for 'Either Or'.

Special characters such as '%' '£' are also best avoided when searching.  Further Guidance is available from OCLC the suppliers of Discover.

Some special characters '#' '?' are used for wildcard searching, but currently are not working as expected.
