Boolean Searching


Searching for more than one term at once

In an Advanced search you can search for more than one term at once. Two lines of search terms are provided. Click + Add row to open a third search box for a third term. (You can continue to add search boxes to search for more than two terms.)

Between the input boxes is a list box headed And. This is where you select how you want to combine your terms. The options are And, Or, Not.


Searching for terms in different search areas

If you wish, you can specify a different search area for each of your terms. Choose the appropriate search area (e.g., Subject) from the box.
