    • 14. Boolean Logic : AND
      • Narrows search by connecting parts of search statement
      • Reduces number of hits
      • Sample search in EBSCOhost:
      • “ death penalty” and pennsylvania
    • 15. Boolean Logic: OR
      • Expands search
      • Increases number of hits
      • Examples:
        • “ soviet union” or russia
        • “ death penalty” or “capital punishment”
    • 16. Boolean Logic: NOT
      • Narrows search
      • Fewer results
      • Eliminates a specific term
      • Example: marathon not boston
    • 17. Types of Searches

      • Spelling and typing count
      • Use unique, specific terms
      • Use truncation (wild cards) i.e. teen*
