  • NOT is used to indicate which results you DON'T want in your search.

  • You must use NOT next to each keyword you don't want included.

  • Example: Dolphins NOT fish NOT marine NOT mammal gives results that contain Dolphins, except those that ALSO contain fish or mammal or marine.

  • OR is used for several possible keyword combinations you want

  • You must use OR next to each keyword combination you want

  • Example: dog OR cat gives you results that contain either term.

Tricky!:

  • The order in which you use operators (AND, OR, NOT) makes a difference.

  • OR should usually be used before AND

  • Example: dog OR cat AND nutrition gives you results about nutrition for dogs or cats.

  • While: nutrition AND dog OR cat gives you results about nutrition for dogs as well as results about cats (not just nutrition).

  • Refine your search by dragging AND, OR or NOT pieces to the puzzle.

  • You can completely clear the search by clicking on the "X" on the right side of the board.

  • Delete pieces by dragging them to the bucket icon.
