Boolean searching allows you to combine keywords, authors, titles, etc. in a single search.
And = Dogs AND Cats = Items containing both the word "dogs" and "cats" (default option) [screenshot example]
Or = Trees OR Ponderosa = Items containing either the word "trees" or "ponderosa" (broad search) [screenshot example]
XOR = Dogs XOR Cats = Items containing either "dogs" or "cats", but not both (narrow search) [screenshot example]
Not = Mexico NOT "New Mexico" = Items containing Mexico…but excluding anything with the phrase "New Mexico" (narrow search) [screenshot example]
Tip: You can also type these Boolean search terms between keywords in the basic search box. Boolean terms do not need to be capitalized.You may also use the following search operators:
