OR – at least either one of the terms will appear in the result. e.g. Chinese OR Japanese

NOT– only find items that do not contain the search term. e.g. painting NOT Japanese

painting AND Chinese OR Japanese

What will you find?

Page 9: Exploring Library’s resources

Research Techniques Parenthesis

( ) Use parenthesis ( ) to group words together and set the order of the search when using Boolean Operators.

e.g. use painting AND (Chinese OR Japanese) will find items with painting and Chinese or items with painting and Japanese in the result.
