Q. Can you provide a quick reminder of what a Boolean search is, and what the Boolean operators are?

Answer

To perform a Boolean search means to search for two or more words or phrases by combining them using the Boolean operators, which are AND, OR, and NOT. The Boolean operators help make searches more efficient by defining the relationship between you search terms. AND will narrow down searches by telling a database what items you want together in your search results, OR will broaden searches, and NOT excludes specific items from search results.
