Boolean Venn Diagram

AND will return results that include both search terms you enter. OR will return results that mention either of the search terms you enter. Using NOT will exclude search results based on a specific term.

Phrase Searching

Does one of your search terms contain multiple words? Use quotation marks around the search term to ensure that those words are searched together as a phrase. For example, putting the phrase "social media" in quotes will return results that mention those two words together.

Truncation Searching

Many search tools let you utilize what is known as truncation searching, often represented in a search tool by an asterisk*. Use this option to help search for variants of a word at the same time. Truncation allows you to search the "root" form of a word with all its different endings by adding a symbol to the end of a word. For example, searching for child* will search for child, children, childhood, etc. at the same time!
