OneSearch combines most of the library's books, journal articles, and digital resources into a single search.
Boolean logic (the use of AND, OR, NOT, quotations, parenthesis, and truncation) will help you to control your search.
Enclosing your search for these words in quotation marks forces OneSearch to treat the idea as a phrase.
"death penalty" OR "capital punishment"
Using the Boolean operator OR between these search terms will retrieve at least one of the search terms, death penalty OR capital punishment.
overcrowding AND prisons
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.
