Boolean Search

A Boolean search uses the connectors AND, OR, and NOT to create search statements. AND, OR, and NOT each have logical functions and make your search produce specific results. For example, a search for 'cats AND dogs' will find information about BOTH, but a search for 'cats OR dogs' will find information about EITHER animal but not necessarily both in the same information  source.
