Boolean logic

Brandeis Library OneSearch Catalog

Results from a search of the Brandeis OneSearch Library Catalog include eBooks and articles the library has access to, along with items from our print collection and other library-owned resources.

Search tips

  • Remember to enclose search phrases in quotes:

"three kingdoms"

This ensures that the database will return results that include the entire phrase

"three kingdoms"

rather than records that contain both of these words, but not your search phrase:

records that include the word three and the word kingdoms but not the phrase "three kingdoms"

Doing this will help you avoid sifting through irrelevant results.

  • To search for more than one variant of a term, use truncation:

buddh* will search for

Buddha and Buddhism and Buddhist

The database searches for any word that begins with the letters that precede the truncation symbol (in this case, an asterisk). Some databases use other symbols, such as a question mark, for truncation.

  • If you want to broaden a search, you can revise it by including your original term with a related term in an "or" search:

ex. choson OR joseon

See the box on Boolean logic for more about this search technique.
