The second tip is on ways how to type query words in the search box. You can use a variety of combinations.
- Use quotation marks to search for a phrase. If you do not use quotation marks, the system will search for your words separately anywhere within the resources.
- Example: “global warming”
- AND = searches all the terms
Example: wisdom AND vision (Both wisdom and vision are searched. Results will include both wisdom and vision within a resource)
- OR = searches either of the terms
Example: university OR college (Either university or college is searched. Results will include either university or college and not both within a resource)
- NOT = searches the first term and excludes the second term.
Example: stress NOT anxiety (Only stress is searched but not anxiety. Results will include stress alone and anxiety is totally excluded)
- Example: Nurs* = nurse, nursing, nurses
- Example: Wom?n = woman, women
Remember: You can use any “Search options” mentioned in the first tip with your combination of query words
