Boolean Logic

Boolean logic (the use of AND, OR, NOT, quotations, parenthesis, and truncation) will help you to control your search.

Example 1

"food insecurity"

Enclosing your search for these words in quotation marks forces OneSearch to treat the idea as a phrase.

Example 2

hunger OR "food insecurity"

Using the Boolean operator OR between these search terms will retrieve at least one of the search terms, hunger or food insecurity.


Example 3

hunger AND "Campus Kitchens"

Both concepts will be searched since the Boolean operator AND connects those concepts.

Note:  If you do not see your search term in the title of an article, check the article's abstract.
