  • SEARCH BOX: STRUCTURED SCREEN: BOOLEAN SEARCHING 21
  • 1. Write down your topic in its simplest form Then break it up into CONCEPTS. The impact of climate change on natural resources & sustainable development Concept 1 Concept 2 Concept 3 BOOLEAN SEARCHING 22
  • 2. Think of key words that describe each of your concepts CONCEPT 1 Environmental change Global warming CONCEPT 2 Water ocean sea river CONCEPT 3 Sustainable development The impact of climate change on natural resources & sustainable development Concept 1 Concept 3Concept 2 23
  • 3. Construct your search strategy Boolean logic provides the language you use to structure your keyword search … the search engine needs to know how your search terms relate to each other In Boolean searching, you make use of the three Boolean operators: AND OR NOT 24
  • Use AND to combine different concepts: “Climate change AND Water “ Climate change Water • Using ‘AND’ narrows your search. • It retrieves items containing all of the search terms or keywords that you specify. • The blue shaded area represents the search results. 25
  • Use OR to enter keywords for the same (single) concept: “Water OR Sea OR rivers OR Ocean” WATER RIVERS SEA OCEAN • Using ‘OR’ broadens your search. • It retrieves items containing any one of the search terms or keywords that you specify. • The shaded area represents the search results. 26
  • Use NOT to get rid of unwanted results: “water NOT rivers” Water Rivers 27
  • Environmental Change OR Global warming Water OR Sea OR Ocean OR Rivers Sustainable Development AND CONCEPT 1 Environmental Change Global warming CONCEPT 2 Water Sea Ocean Rivers CONCEPT 3 Sustainable development AND The impact of climate change on natural resources & sustainable development 28
  • ONE SEARCH BOX: Use brackets to separate your concepts STRUCTURED SCREEN: Water OR ocean OR sea OR rivers Sustainable Development (Environmental Change OR climate change OR global warming) AND (water OR ocean OR sea OR rivers) AND Sustainable Development 4. Type your search strategy Environmental Change OR climate change OR global warming 29
