Keyword Synonym Pairs

What is it?
In Keyword and Advanced Keyword searches, searching on one of the synonym pairs will retrieve records for both forms. For example: a keword search on color and a keyword search on colour will retrieve the same records.

Note: this only works for Keword and Advanced Keyword searches. It doesn't work for Title, Author or Subject index searches.
