Boolean Search Operators

Boolean search is a type of search that uses operators or modifiers (most commonly the words AND, OR, and NOT) to combine keywords in strategic ways to create simple or complex search strings that are designed to retrieve the most relevant information from a database or catalog.  It is important to try several different strategies and search strings with various keywords and phrases to give yourself the best chance of finding the most relevant and useful resources for your research assignment.
