Boolean Searching

Boolean Searching is is a way to logically link key words together in little mathematical expressions. 

A search for “Pirate and Ship” will find results with both words present.  This works well when looking for two different ideas together.

OR ‘or is more’
A search for “Pirate or Buccaneer” will find results containing one term, or the other, or both terms together.  This works well for words with similar meaning.

A search for “Pirate not Baseball” will find results with the first term only.
