Have you seen a * on Proquest?

If you see a * after a word in an article in any of the Proquest databases it can lead to important information.

I came across this article in the Proquest ANZ Newstand database and was curious about what the * meant (see arrowed). After scrolling down to the bottom of the article there was a note explaining that a reader of The Press had sent a letter indicating that the Addington Prison was built in 1871 and not 1896 as stated in the article.
