The following search strategies can be used in our library catalog, Library OneSearch and in our library databases.
AND, OR, NOT:
Phrase Searching: Put quotation marks (" ") around search terms to search for them as a phrase. For example: "higher education".
Truncation (*): The asterisk (*) replaces any number of characters and will find all endings for a word root. For example, instruct* will find instruct, instructor, instruction, instructing, etc.
Grouping Keywords: Use parentheses ( ) around your search terms to group them together. For example, the search ("online learning" OR "e-learning") AND chemistry will search for resources that mention the terms online learning or e-learning and chemistry.
