Transcript of Let's do the Boolean!

Boolean
Use OR in a search to:


Connect two or more similar concepts (synonyms)

Broaden your results, telling the database that ANY of your search terms can be present in the resulting records

Example: renewable energy OR solar OR wind
Use AND in a search to:
Narrow your results

Tell the database that ALL search terms must be present in the resulting records

Note that in many, but not all, databases, the AND is implied. For example, Google automatically puts
an AND in between your search terms.

Example: renewable energy AND China
Exclude words from your search


Narrow your search, telling the database
to ignore concepts that may be implied
by your search terms


Example: peacekeeping NOT United Nations
Use NOT in a search to:
Peacekeeping
United
Nations
Renewable
energy
China
Renewable
energy
Solar
