Q. What are boolean operators?
Boolean operators are useful to:
- Connect the keywords in a search engine.
- Change the relationship between keywords on the Online Resources databases.
This is how boolean operators work:
AND - Narrows your search to include records containing both of the words. ex: college AND retention
OR - Broadens your search to include records with either one word or the other. ex: college OR university
NOT - Narrows your search to exclude records that contain a certain word. ex: NOT tuition
() - Group words or phrases together ex: (college OR university) AND admissions
