Using Connectors and Commands to Search

Use Boolean searches to filter your searches. Boolean searches allow you to combine words and phrases using the words AND, OR, NOT as well as certain operators. The following articles discuss using Boolean search connectors:

  • Search Term Connectors help you define the terms you are searching (or not searching) on.
  • Proximity Connectors help you define the relationships between terms you are searching on.
  • Wildcard characters help you search for variant spellings of words.
