Searching: Boolean Operators
AND is the default operator between multiple words entered in Keyword and Keyword Expert searches.
Boolean operators may not be used in the basic keyword searches, but may be used in Keyword Expert searches
Operators may be in lower or upper case.
If a Boolean operator is included in a search phrase, put the phrase in quotes.
"nickle and dime"
"body and soul"
"dazed and confused"
Enclose search terms and operators in parentheses to specify the order in which they are to be interpreted. Information within parentheses is interpreted first, then information outside parentheses is interpreted next.
(life or death) and poem*
If there are nested parentheses, the innermost parenthetical expressions are interpreted first, then the next, until the full search statement has been interpreted.
((song* or poem*) and (life or death)) and antholog*
A dash before a word acts as NOT.
