Customizing Your Search: Advanced Overview

Get better results using Boolean searching (or, and, wildcard symbols)

Search example: 
brand* and (maintain or manage) and (online or internet)

  • Parentheses keep similar concepts together
  • Inside parentheses, OR gives the database flexibility between search terms.
  • AND between concepts tells the database that Concept 1 MUST be linked with Concept 2.
  • Most databases use the * for a wildcard search: brand* = brand, brands, branding, etc.
  • In this example, brand must be linked to either maintain or manage, and must also be linked to either online or internet.
