Search Tips

Use Operators and Key Words

Key words are concrete specific words that tell the library search what you need. Unlike searching on Google, you can't type a full sentence. Select just the important words. 

Connect those words with operators.

  • AND - Narrows search results by filtering for results that only contain both terms
    • EX: Bovine Brucellosis AND control
  • OR - Broadens search by retrieving results with either search term 
    • EX: Cow OR Cattle OR Bovine
  • NOT - Narrows search by excluding results that contain certain terms
    • EX: Brucellosis NOT human
