Boolean operators are words you can use between your search terms to either broaden or limit your search.
1. Use OR to broaden your search and to join SIMILAR terms.
- Example: "academic achievement" OR "academic excellence"
2. Use AND to narrow your search and join DISSIMILAR.
- Example: "academic achievement" AND motivation
3. Use NOT to narrow your search. This will omit items with that term.
- Example: "(academic achievement" AND motivation) NOT elementary
