OneSearch Advanced: Top 5 Tips

Boolean Logic

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

Example 1

"hurricane katrina"

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

Example 2

           "disaster management" OR "disaster preparedness"

Using the Boolean operator OR between these search terms will retrieve at least one of the search terms, "disaster management" OR "disaster preparedness".  Using OR broadens your search.


Example 3

"FEMA" AND "forest fires"

Both concepts will be searched since the Boolean operator AND connects those concepts.  Using AND narrows your search.

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